I love a versatile recipe – something you can use as an appetizer, a salad, or a summer entree – and this is one of those recipes. I originally developed this recipe for a Mexican themed cooking dinner party I was leading, but have used it many times since. I call this a mock ceviche because instead of allowing citrus juice to cook the shrimp over several hours (or overnight), I actually precook the shrimp. I like this technique when a large group will be eating the food as I don’t want anyone to be squeamish about the “raw” (even though it’s really cooked by citrus juices) shrimp in a true ceviche. If you make it the authentic way, simply marinate the raw shrimp lime juice overnight and then combine with remaining ingredients.
