– 1 lb fresh shrimp, peeled, deveined, and chopped
– 3 limes, juiced
– 2 lemons, juiced
– 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
– 2 medium tomatoes, diced
– 1 jalapeño, finely chopped (optional for heat)
– 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
– 1 ripe avocado, diced
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Tortilla chips or tostadas for serving

1. Marinate the Shrimp: In a large glass bowl, combine the chopped shrimp with the lime and lemon juice. Mix well and ensure that the shrimp is fully immersed in the juice. Cover and refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes, or until the shrimp is opaque and cooked through by the acidity of the citrus juice.

2. Prepare the Vegetables: While the shrimp is marinating, prepare the rest of your ingredients. Finely chop the red onion, dice the tomatoes, finely chop the jalapeño (if using), and chop the cilantro.

3. Combine Ingredients: Once the shrimp is ready, drain off most of the citrus juice, leaving a little bit to keep the ceviche moist. Add the red onion, tomatoes, jalapeño, and cilantro to the shrimp. Toss gently to combine.

4. Add Avocado: Carefully fold in the diced avocado, making sure not to crush it. Season the ceviche with salt and pepper to taste.

5. Serve: Serve immediately with tortilla chips or on tostadas. Enjoy your Mexican Ceviche Delight fresh and chilled.

This ceviche is sure to impress with its combination of flavors and textures, making it a crowd-pleaser for any occasion. Enjoy the burst of freshness from each bite!
