Marinated Raw Shrimp (Shrimp Ceviche)

Chef's note: One of my favorite things to do is to suck out the heads of the shrimp. In Italy this is a major compliment to the chef. It’s also very flavorful.

Directions for: Marinated Raw Shrimp (Shrimp Ceviche)


2 lb. (900g) fresh shrimp

2 lemons, juiced

salt, to taste

pepper, to taste

chili flakes (optional)

olive oil, to taste



1. Shell and clean your shrimp leaving the heads on. Lay them on a plate. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over them. Some salt, pepper, or chili flakes and a good splash of olive oil. This is a ceviche style dish that calls for letting the fish stay in the marinade before serving. This will partially cook the shrimp. Before serving sprinkle some fresh parsley over the whole thing.
