How to Cook Mexican Shrimp Aguachile

Field Report by Kate Hartsock

MEXICO — Did you know that you can cook shrimp using only lime juice and a little time? It’s true! In this video, Sissi and Paco will show you how to make traditional Mexican Shrimp Aguachile, a classic recipe that is sure to please. You will need a pound of fresh shrimp and 5-10 limes to start. Squeeze the juice from the limes and make sure all the shrimp are covered in juice. Leave the shrimp to sit for awhile, or overnight. Because of the acid in the lime juice, the shrimp will “cook” and are perfectly safe to eat. But, you can sauté them if you prefer.

Next comes the salsa. Using serrano chilies, garlic, and lots of fresh cilantro, this flavorful salsa packs a punch. Blend up the vegetables with a little lime juice and salt to the consistency of pesto. To finish, slice up some red onions, cucumbers, and avocado, and toss together with shrimp. All done! Serve with chips and eat with friends.
