Shrimp Ceviche

stephanie tate


My mom grew up in Acapulco and she just loves this dish. We also have a friend that currently lives in Spain who emails regularly to tell me how other ceviches are not nearly as good.

Sometimes we eat this as a main dish and have a salad on the side for a light summer meal.
