Prawn aguachile: ideal Mexican recipe to enjoy the summer

This shrimp aguachile is a typical Mexican dish, similar to the Peruvian ceviche. There are two types of aguachile: the traditional one, which is prepared with water, chili and raw shrimp, and the mestizo, which adds lemon, salt and pepper. Currently we can find many variations of this recipe, such as the one I propose today.

As they say, this traditional dish helps to cure hangovers, so you already know what you should have prepared in the fridge if you plan to party. Do not hesitate to increase the amounts of any of the ingredients if you particularly like it, as you know that traditional recipes are usually prepared "by eye".

How to make shrimp aguachile

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 25 m
  • Elaboration 25 m

We start defrosting the shrimp and, with the help of a knife, we remove the intestine. We wash them, dry them with kitchen paper and open them in half, lengthwise. We arrange them in a source and sprinkle them with the lime juice. We leave them to marinate in the fridge for 10 minutes.

We cut the onion into feathers, put it in a strainer and pass it under running cold water. Chop the coriander leaves. Peel the cucumber, open it in half, remove the seeds and grind. Add the lemon juice and season with salt.

Drain the prawns, arrange them in a serving dish, on top of which we distribute the crushed cucumber, coriander, onion and chopped chilli. We serve right away.
