Shrimp Ceviche

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/shrimp_ceviche.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2010

Traditional ceviche consists of raw seafood tossed with an acidic marinade (think: citrus juice or vinegar) that “cooks” the fish. We cook the shrimp before marinating it. This recipe originally appeared on Emeril Green, Emeril Lagasse’s cooking show on Planet Green. Lagasse has his own brand of frozen wild American shrimp, which meet strict U.S. environmental standards. The shrimp taste sweet and “they just smell like the sea,” according to Emeril. Serve this with tostones (fried plantain chips) or tortilla chips. (Recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc.)

Ingredients

Poaching Liquid

Ceviche

Preparation

  1. Combine water and 1/4 cup salt in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Add shrimp and immediately turn off the heat. Let the shrimp sit until just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board until cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes.
  2. Chop the shrimp into 1/2-inch pieces and place in a medium nonreactive bowl (see Tip). Add lemon, lime and orange juice. Stir in cucumber, onion and chiles. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Stir tomato, avocado, chopped cilantro, oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt into the shrimp mixture. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving. Garnish with cilantro leaves, if desired.
