This is the tastiest I have ever made:

Shrimp Ceviche…

?2 Pounds medium raw deveined shrimp and chopped in chunks
?2 Avocados sliced into thick chunks
?1 Jalapeno finely minced
?20 Limes
?2 Tomatoes chopped
?2 Cucumbers peeled and chopped
?1 handful of cilantro chopped
?1 small finely chopped onion
?Salt and Pepper to your liking

In a large bowl mix the shrimp, jalapeno, tomatoes, cucumbers,cilantro and onions.

Now slice your 20 limes in half, and if you have a lime squeezer that's great otherwise use the strength of your hands to squeeze the lime juice into a cup.

Once you have squeezed all the limes get a strainer and place it over the bowl full of the shrimp and veggies. Pour the juice through so that the strainer catched all of the seeds. I prefer this method to deseeding every single lime because thats a little tedious.

Now mix the contents in the bowl once again.

Go ahead and add in the avocado and gently stir them into the mixture.

All of the shrimp and veggies should be submerged in the lime juice. Let the ceviche marinate for about 3 hours before eating it. The acidity of the lime juice will "cook" the shrimp and they will turn pink on their own.

After 3 hours add the salt and pepper.
