Coconut Ceviche

My ultimate favorite food, ceviche! I really love making it now because in NC fishing is amazing. Many people will have there kiosk on the sides of the road with their fresh shrimp or whatever they caught from that morning. It's aaaamazing ;)

1 cup cevice, 12 Mission Tortilla chips and 1/4 avocado equals 316 calories.

2 lbs shrimp cut up in small piece's. You can keep whole if you like
6-10 limes
1-2 large tomatoes diced(I used 1red and 1 green)
1/2 onion diced
1/4 cilantro bunch diced
1-5 serrano peppers diced
1/4 brown coconut shredded

  There are two ways you can make this. If you want to make it the raw way put the shrimp im a large bowl and cover with lime juice. The juice will cook the shrimp and it will turn color when it's done. Depending on the acidity of the limes it can cook in ten minutes or an hour. If you don't want it raw just boil the shrimp.
   When the shrimp is done mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  Serve with chips or on a tostada with some sliced avocado and a lime wedge. Valentina hot sauce also if you have a super spicy taste like me.
  If your on an diet you can eat it with sliced cucumbers or have just one serving of chips.

Tips: when picking out limes always get the ones that have a smooth rind. You don't want ones with pores showing as they don't have any lime juice.
   Cutting a coconut. Poke the mouth and drain the water. I get the back of a meat cleaver and hit the coconut right in the middle all around the coconut. It should open it up right through the middle. To get the meat out, get a knife and slip it under the meat and the shell. Then cut from the middle to the edge of the meat. I hit the outside with the cleaver again to loosen it up.
  Don't substitute serrano peppers for jalapenos. It doesn't taste as good.
   Ceviche is also really good with a mixed seafood, fish, octopus and squid. Hope you try it out

I have pictures of coconut ceviche and the one with chips is regular ceviche no coconut.
