I bought frozen shrimp (2lb bag, peeled and devined) and added only 1/2 cup water. Then I didn't add the cucumbers, but add green onion and well as yellow onion and then some diced jalepenos fresh from my Dad's garden. It was yummy!
Ceviche de Camaron (Shrimp Ceviche Cocktail)
While most of us think of classic ceviche as raw fish marinated in fresh lime juice long enough to give it a cooked texture, in Mexico there are ceviche "cocktails" that combine seafood that's been cooked with fresh vegetables, hot sauce, lime juice and just a little ketchup. It's an easy, refreshing crowd pleaser, and you don't have to track down the just-off-the-boat fresh fish necessary for the classic ceviche. Serve with tostadas, tortilla chips, or saltines.
