Only 5 minutes in the lime juice? I haven't yet gathered the courage to try ceviche - it sounds too close to raw!

I believe he is using already - cooked shrimp. I was kind of worried too until I looked at the photo!

You guys are correct, it is already cooked! :)

I'm a fan of well made ceviche. Clams, fish, octopus, it's all good. Never heard of using shrimp or avocado, but should be interesting. Thanks!
