Recipe: Mami's Easy Summertime Ceviche


My Mom is the BEST cook. I love cooking, but am mostly a recipe-follower. My Mom, on the other hand, is one of those cooks who rarely uses a recipe book, yet always manages to whip up the most amazing dishes on her own, from scratch.

(Alex + me, with my cutie patootie Mom)

So today, to continue the lime-love, I would like to share with you my Mom's amazing ceviche recipe. She makes it every summer for the family, and it usually is devoured within minutes. It's addictively delicious. Especially when served poolside with saltines. Enjoy! xo

Ingredients
4 to 6 Servings
1 lb cooked shrimp
8 to 10 limes
1 medium-sized red onion, chopped
1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
3 tablespoons of ketchup
3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 small can of hearts of palm (optional)
Salt + Pepper to taste

Directions
Rinse shrimp and remove tails. Cut shrimp into pieces. (If they are large shrimps you can cut in three pieces. If not, cut in half.) Put shrimp in a deep medium-sized bowl and squeeze all the limes to cover. Add chopped onions, cilantro, hearts of palm, ketchup and mayo + mix all ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Serve cold with crackers.
