Shrimp Ceviche Lettuce Wraps

Course Main Course
Prep Time 25 minutes
Author Tracy


  • 1 pound high-quality medium raw shrimp peeled, deveined, tail removed, cut into thin pieces
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 cup peeled seeded and finely chopped cucumber
  • 1 cup seeded and finely chopped tomato
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 serrano chile pepper deveined, seeded and minced
  • 1 head of butter lettuce washed and full leaves pulled off
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • Kosher salt for seasoning


  • Place the shrimp in a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup lime juice and let stand for 15 minutes so the shrimp can "cook" in the lime juice (any less and it won't cook, any more and it toughens).
  • Meanwhile, in a separate large mixing bowl, mix the remaining 1/2 cup lime juice, cucumbers, tomatoes, cilantro, red onions and serrano chile to incorporate evenly.
  • Transfer the mixed vegetables into the shrimp bowl and mix well to incorporate.
  • Season the ceviche with some salt.
  • Serve in lettuce wraps, top with avocado and hot sauce.
