  • 1 pound medium or large raw shrimp peeled, deveined and chopped
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced, half mooned
  • 2 roma tomatoes seeds removed and chopped
  • 1 jalapeño seeds removed and chopped
  • 1-2 garlic cloves finely diced
  • 6 limes juiced
  • 3 lemons juiced
  • handful fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 8 tostada shells

Avocado Guacamole Cream

  • 2 avocados peeled and seeded
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1-2 jalapeños seeds removed, chopped
  • 1 roma tomato seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 cup Mexican Cream or sour cream
  • salt to taste


  • Chop shrimp into 2-3 pieces.  Place in a bowl and pour juice of limes and lemons.  Toss shrimp and refrigerate for 2 hours.  Stir occasionally.
    The acid from the limes and lemons will "cook" the shrimp.
  • After 2 hours add the onions, tomatoes, jalapeño, garlic, cilantro, salt and pepper.
    Stir all together and let sit in the refrigerator for 1 hour or longer.

Avocado Guacamole Cream

  • Mash avocados in a bowl with a fork.  Add all other ingredients and combine well.
  • Spread each tostada shell with a layer of the avocado cream and top with a few tablespoons of the shrimp ceviche.


*Could prepare the ceviche the night before and allow flavors to fuse overnight.
*If you cannot find tostada shells in supermarket, simply fry corn tortillas in a tablespoon of oil over medium heat until golden brown on both sides.  Drain on paper towels.  Ready to use.
