Shrimp Ceviche

Ceviche is a popular dish in Latin America made by marinating fish or shellfish in citrus juice (or another acidic liquid).  The acid in the citrus literally cooks the fish and the result is a flavorful and refreshing dish. 

This ceviche is very simple and fresh. The best part is that there is no cooking involved so it is perfect to make in the heat of summer.
