Ceviche de Camaron (Shrimp Ceviche Cocktail)

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Jan Gautro

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.
