From The Galley: Shrimp Ceviche

Shrimp Ceviche Recipe

This easy recipe for langostino ceviche is made with langostinos (or shimp or lobster), lime juice, red onions, cilantro, hot peppers, garlic, and olive oil. Langostinos, also known as squat lobster, are a type of shellfish that are related to hermit crabs. In the US, you can find langostino tails (frozen) at Trader Joe’s and Costco. In terms of taste, they are slightly sweeter than shrimp, you could say that these langostinos as not quite lobsters, but are more delicate than shrimp and have a more similar texture to lobster. 


2 lbs of cooked langostino meat, defrosted if frozen
1 red onion, cut in half and finely sliced lengthwise
12-15 limes, juiced
1-2 serrano peppers or other hot peppers, cut in half
A few sprigs of cilantro + ½ bunch finely chopped
1-2 tbs olive oil
1 garlic clove, lightly crushed
Salt to taste


Chifles, patacones or tostones, or tostado corn
