Pro Tips

If you want your ceviche to be less acidic or spicy, try using tomato sauce, ketchup, or cucumber instead of lime juice or jalapeño peppers. You can also experiment with different variations of this classic ceviche recipe by adding other ingredients like diced avocado, diced mango, or even cooked octopus or scallops.

Remember to keep your shrimp ceviche cold until right before serving for the best texture and flavor. Also, make sure your ingredients, including the shrimp, are as fresh as possible. This will ensure that your ceviche is safe to eat and will taste its best.

Try this recipe with different citrus juices and chiles. In Puerto Rico, for example, you can find a fish ceviche that’s made with lemon juice instead of lime juice. Another variation is “de camarón”, a cooked shrimp version that does not require any raw seafood.

That being said, this easy shrimp ceviche appetizer recipe is the perfect choice for a warm summer day or anytime you want to savor the refreshing flavors of fresh seafood and citrus juices.

Substitutions and Variations

 A summer essential!

When it comes to cooking, nothing excites me more than the possibility of using alternative ingredients without compromising on taste. This shrimp and coriander seviche recipe is no different! Below are some delicious substitutions and variations that you can try out:

– Substitute shrimp with cooked crab meat or firm white fish such as halibut. Ensure that the fish is fresh and cubed finely to avoid a chewy texture.

– Add diced avocados to the mix for a creamier texture.

– If you enjoy spicy food, add sliced jalapeños or habaneros for a tantalizing kick!

– For an extra pop of color and flavor, include diced mangoes or pineapple.

– Instead of red onions, try using shallots or purple onions for a milder flavor.

– If you don’t have access to coriander, substitute it for parsley which has a similar taste profile.

– Use orange juice instead of lemon juice for added sweetness in your ceviche.

Remember, these substitutions and variations are not set in stone but are rather meant to inspire you to have fun in the kitchen and experiment with different flavors.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

 It’s all about the tang!
It’s all about the tang!

Ah, the beauty of a make-ahead dish. There’s nothing quite like being able to prepare a meal ahead of time and have it ready when you need it. Luckily, this shrimp and coriander seviche is the perfect make-ahead appetizer.

To make ahead, simply combine all of the ingredients (except for the avocado) and store them in the fridge for up to six hours. The lime and lemon juices will continue to “cook” the shrimp during this time, resulting in even more flavorful seviche.

When you’re ready to serve, simply slice up an avocado and mix it in with the rest of the ingredients. The creaminess of the avocado perfectly balances out the citrusy tanginess of the seviche.

Storing leftover seviche is simple as well. Transfer any leftovers to an airtight container and store them in the fridge for up to two days. However, I must warn you that as with most fresh seafood dishes, the flavor and texture may deteriorate over time.

If you need to reheat your seviche, do so gently by placing it in a bowl placed over a slightly larger bowl filled with hot water. Stir frequently until warmed through – but avoid heating it too much! You don’t want to overcook those succulent shrimps!

Now that you’re armed with all these tips for making and storing your shrimp and coriander seviche ahead of time, there’s no excuse not to enjoy this delicious appetizer at your next party or occasion!

Tips for Perfect Results

When it comes to making perfect shrimp and coriander seviche, there are a few tips that can help elevate the dish from good to great. As someone who has made this ceviche appetizer recipe countless times, I am well-versed in the nuances of this dish. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a newcomer to the world of ceviche appetizers, here are my top tips for achieving perfect results every time.

Firstly, it’s important to use the freshest ingredients possible. This means sourcing the best quality shrimp you can find and using fresh citrus juice. When making this shrimp coriander seviche, I prefer to use raw shrimp cocktail instead of cooked because it gives the dish a more authentic flavor. Using fresh lemon and lime juice will also give the ceviche a bright, tangy flavor that perfectly complements the sweetness of the shrimp.

Another key tip is to let the shrimp marinate in the citrus juice for the right amount of time. Over-marinating or under-marinating can drastically change the texture and taste of the dish. Generally, I recommend letting the shrimp sit in the lime and lemon juice mixture for around 20-30 minutes before adding in any other ingredients. This is long enough for the flavors to meld together while still ensuring that the shrimp retains its texture.

To make sure that all of your ingredients have been properly mixed together, be sure to stir everything thoroughly once they are combined. I recommend using a large bowl for this step so that there is plenty of room for tossing all of your ingredients together. It’s important not to overmix at this stage though as doing so can break down proteins and affect the texture of your shrimp.

Finally, remember that this recipe is versatile and there are various ways you can add your own personal flair to it. If you like things spicy, feel free to add some sliced jalapeños into your mix or experiment with different types of citrus for a unique twist. Whether you are making ceviche for the first time or the hundredth, taking these tips into account will help ensure that your shrimp and coriander seviche turns out absolutely delicious.
