Aguachile Marinade:

  • Lime juice (12 limes)
  • 3 serrano peppers (stems removed)
  • 2 jalapeno peppers (stems removed)

  • 1/2 cilantro bunch
  • 1 tsp salt


1. Wash raw shrimp. Make sure to remove any veins and cut them lengthwise.

2. Place shrimp in a shallow dish.

3. Add all the marinade ingredients to the blender until smooth (about a minute).

4. Pour marinade over shrimp and mix.

5. Thinly slice cucumber, onion and tomato and add over shrimp. Mix them in slightly over shrimp. 

6. Refrigerate for about 3 hours, best served cold.

Taste with tortilla chips or tostadas to see if it needs more salt but usually the chips/tostadas have plenty of salt to balance taste.
