Ceviche de Camarones y Mango (Shrimp and Mango Ceviche)

Ceviche, also known as cebiche or seviche, is a popular Latin American dish. Ceviche is usually made with raw fish that is marinated in citrus juice, such as orange, lemon or lime.

We have many different variations of ceviche in Colombia. Ceviche de Pulpo (Octopus Ceviche), Ceviche de Camarones (Shrimp Ceviche), Ceviche de Pescado (Fish Ceviche), Ceviche de Camarón con Coco (Coconut Shrimp Ceviche) and this Ceviche de Camarones y Mango (Shrimp and Mango Ceviche), a popular dish from the Pacific region of Colombia.

Colombian-style ceviches are usually served with saltine crackers, plátanitos (plantain chips) or patacones (fried green plantain). This Ceviche de Camarones y Mango is very simple to make and if you don’t like to eat raw fish, this is the perfect ceviche for you because the shrimp is already cooked!

This Shrimp and Mango Ceviche is one of my personal favorites. It’s light and refreshing, and with just the right amount of sweetness from the mangoes and heat from the hot pepper, it will have you coming back for more!

The ceviche looks wonderful. I have had some with mango before but not shrimp. Very summery too.

This looks delicious! I’m wondering…would the dish be affected if I make it the night before to have for lunch the following day?

Made this last night for dinner, delicious. Its just the perfect light summer dinner.

Followed directions exactly (which I don’t always do) – it looked so beautiful and delicious. I think, however, that my limes gave more juice than expected, and so my sauce was more liquidy than yours looked. Ultimately, the lime taste is a bit overpowering. What would you recommend to tone down the lime flavor?

You can add more orange juice or next time add less lime juice to it. I love lime juice in my ceviche :)
