    Test Kitchen Tips:
    · Make sure to use a non-reactive bowl when marinating the shrimp. Glass, stainless steel or plastic bowls all work well, just stay away from aluminum, as it can react with the acidic lime juice and give food a metallic taste.
    · Swap in fresh white fish, such as halibut, red snapper, bass or grouper in place of the shrimp.
    · Serve ceviche with a drizzle of your favorite chile oil crisp for a crunchy topping.
