How to Make Panamanian style shrimp salad
- Add water to sauce pot and bring to a boil. Cook shrimp till they just start to turn pink. Drain and place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Don't over cook. The lime juice will help finish the cooking process.
- Once the shrimp is cooled. Drain. Then add the juice of 1 1/2 limes. Place in fridge for 1 hour. After one hour. Drain lime juice from shrimp. Add remaining ingredients and the juice from 1/2 lime. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes till chilled.
- Notes: habanero is spicy. If you want to cut down on the heat remove seeds and membrane from the pepper. If you don't like fresh pepper you can add a few dashes of hot sauce.
- Depending on the size shrimp you buy I like to cut them into bite size pieces rather than leave them whole.
