"Ceviche is a wonderful seafood salad marinated in lime juice. This is a recipe that is better the longer it sits. It is best done the day before and allowed to 'cook' in the lime juice overnight. "

  • Cook's Notes
  • Real Ceviche is 'cooked' by the acid in the lime juice; however some people prefer to cook the shrimp and scallops first, it's your choice. If you would like to cook the shrimp and scallops before adding them, don't 'over cook' them they get chewy.
  • Bring a quart of salted water to a boil and add 2-3 tablespoons of Zatarains(R) Shrimp/Crab Boil. Once the water comes to a boil add your shrimp and scallops and bring back to boil once it boils again remove and drain in colander in cold water. Allow to cool and then add to your bowl and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to serve at least 2-3 hours.

I used this wonderful recipe to start me out. I added avacados, cucumber, garlic, and my favorite blend of all spices. I was happy to see limes instead of lemon and fresh tomatoes being used instead of canned paste or puree. Double your recipe because its healthy and tastes even better the next day. Thank you Skeeter.


Made this recipe for a few parties. Everyone raived about the fresh lime taste. Definitly a 5!!!


I tweaked a bit due to personal taste. I added an avocado and half a cucumber. Delish! Great summer meal. Thanks so much for sharing Skeeter!
