Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas

And....I'm BACK! With another SUPER great recipe....SUPER easy.....and Super versatile!! I am all about the easy and the great recipes with a 7 month and 2 yr old at home, I have 0 time or patience to spend more than 30 min in the kitchen for one meal, which is all this took me! And I love this recipe even more because you can serve so many different ways (I will show you at the end :)

So, here's what you need:
1 lb of shrimp (I buy frozen cooked ones at Target, only $6!!! Way cheaper than the grocery store and you just thaw in cold water, chop in half or threes and they are ready to go in)
1/2 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice (usually about 3 lemons squeezed out, run them through the strainer to get rid of the seeds)
1/2 Cup White Vinegar
1 TS Salt
2 TS Tobasco
2 Lg Tomatoes Chopped 1/2" pieces
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1 Medium Onion Chopped 1/2" pieces
10 Cilantro Sprigs Chopped

In a medium bowl, stir together: Lemon Juice, Vinegar, Salt and Hot Sauce....Add the Shrimp...Marinate covered in fridge for 4 Hours.
To save time I chop up the rest of the ingredients, add the olive oil, stir to mix and put in a separate bowl:
Tomato, Onion, Cilantro Olive oil

After 4 hours of marination....combine both bowls and mix up....Marinate for one more hour....Then WAHHHHLAAAA, your ready to eat!!

And this is how we ate it, over tostada shells.

Or serve it inside corn tortillas

Or just serve it in a bowl...

Or serve it as an appetizer with tortilla chips!!!

And you can add so many different things....Avocado, Jalapenos, Cucumber, Fish, Other Seafoods, and the list goes on. So get creative!

Hope you love it! Let me know what you think when you try it out!!
