Aguachile Recipe

The Best Ever

"I traveled all around Mexico in an RV for many months sampling my favorite food, ceviche. Your recipe is tops! Thanks." ~ Christine



– Place the sliced shrimp into a bowl and cover with 1 cup fresh lime juice, enough to completely cover the shrimp. Use more as needed.


– Add salt to taste let the lime juice "cook" the shrimp for 30 minutes, flipping once part way through. The shrimp will turn pink in color.


– While the shrimp is cooking, add the red onion to a bowl. Add the vinegar and enough water to cover the onions. Soak until ready.


– Add the reserved lime juice, jugo maggi, garlic, cilantro, jalapeno, serrano and salt to a food processor. Process until smooth.


– Add the shrimp with remaining lime juice to a serving bowl. Pour the aguachile marinade over it.


– Top with sliced red onion, cucumbers, chili peppers, and radish. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to chill.


– Top with fresh herbs. Sprinkle with red chili flakes. – Serve cold with tortilla chips.
