Ceviche is a refreshing appetizer or light meal, commonly made using raw fresh fish or shellfish marinated in fresh citrus juice that chemically "cooks" the seafood due to the citric acid found in citrus fruits. The longer the seafood sits in the marinade, the more cooked the seafood will be. In this case, the shrimp is lightly poached in salted water and then tossed together with freshly squeezed lime juice, diced mango, sliced red onion, tomatoes, jalapeños, chopped cilantro, and sea salt, creating the best-tasting Shrimp Mango Ceviche. Seeing that the shrimp is cooked before marinating, it's a great and easy option for those who don't enjoy eating raw fish or for individuals such as pregnant or nursing women who can't consume raw seafood. 

 

How long should ceviche be marinated?

The acidic properties of citrus juices are what "cooks" ceviche. For those who enjoy having their ceviche more on the rare side, the fish should be marinated for 5 minutes; for more of a well-done texture, the fish can be marinated for up to 20 minutes. If the fish is left in the citrus juice for too long, it will become overcooked and have an undesirable texture. 

How healthy is ceviche?

What is shrimp ceviche made of?
