  • ½ lb Shrimp raw, any size will work
  • 1 Lemon zested & juiced
  • 1 Lime zested & juiced
  • 1 Orange zested & juiced
  • ½ Avocado diced
  • 1 Roma Tomato seeded & diced
  • ¼ Cilantro chopped, plus more for serving
  • Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • 4 Tostada Shells


  • Cut the shrimp into small pieces & set aside in a medium sized container (with a lid).
  • Combine the citrus juice in a measuring cup. All citrus yields a different amount of juice, but you want a combined amount of ½ cup in order to cover the shrimp.
  • Once you have enough liquid, cover the shrimp & stir to combine.
  • Ensure all the shrimp are covered in juice, then cover & set in the fridge to chill for about 30 minutes, stirring once after 15 minutes.
  • Once the shrimp has turned from grey to completely pink, it's ready to go.
  • Remove the shrimp from the juice & combine in a bowl with the avocado, tomato, cilantro & salt & pepper. Mix well.
  • Divide the shrimp mixture among 4 tostada shells & garnish with additional cilantro.


This ceviche can also be served up in a bowl with tortilla chips on the side!
