My DH used to make ceviche with large shrimp when we lived on the East Coast. Now that we live on the West Coast, we use small salad style shrimp which are local, wild and sustainable, not to mention inexpensive here. I recommend making this in the morning on the day you will be serving it. I found this to be delicious, even two days after it was made.


1 pound small salad shrimp, cooked
2 lemons, juiced
2 limes, juiced
2 oranges, juiced
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced into 1/4-inch pieces
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
4-6 jalapeno rings finely chopped
1 tomato, diced
1 Hass avocado, peeled, seeded, and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon roughly chopped cilantro leaves, plus leaves for garnish
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt to taste


Rinse and drain shrimp. Place in a non-reactive bowl (I use glass). Add the lemon, lime and orange juices and stir in the cucumber, red onion and chiles. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Stir the tomato, avocado, chopped cilantro, and olive oil into the shrimp mixture at least 30 minutes before serving.
