Meet Pepe. He was our adventure guide in Cozumel when we snorkeled in brackish water (where the salt water and fresh water meet) and also when we explored the underground river. Since these items were in water, we did not get photos but we did have fun (except the cave with the bats… my mom was terrified). Our adventure also included a trip to Wah Wah Beach Bar for a few drinks and an authentic buffet of cheese quesadillas, potato taquitos, tacos, guacamole and an amazing ceviche!
I loved the ceviche so much that I came home and made one with shrimp.
½ cup fresh lime juice
1 lb. cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, coarsely chopped
½ medium red onion, finely chopped
2 medium Serrano chiles (or jalapenos), seeded and deveined, finely chopped (optional)
1 medium tomato, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp. homemade sofrito (optional)
1.2 tsp. cumin
¼ tsp. sea salt
- Combine lime juice and shrimp in a medium bowl; mix well. Marinate, covered, in the refrigerator overnight.
- Combine shrimp mixture, onion, chiles (if desired), and tomato in a large bowl; mix well.
- Add cilantro and salt; toss gently to blend.
- Serve with chips or have on tacos with some lettuce, avocado and hot sauce.
