I love a good ceviche, so I wanted to blog that today (I made this earlier in the month closer to Cinco). But I chose to make it with cooked shrimp,  so while not *technically* a ceviche, this would be called a shrimp salsa.

But at any rate, if you had gotten the raw shrimp marinating in an acidic enough mixture, this would be quite similar to how that is served at many of our local taquerias, except this one has the cooked shrimp, so for those who are shy of raw seafood, you get all the flavor and none of the worry.

Margarita Shrimp Tostadas

I call it Margarita because of the trinity of tequila, lime and orange. Margaritas usually made with Cointreau and not orange, but we aren’t making the actual drink here, just being inspired by it.

Not feeling well today and this is very late going up, so the write-up will be short. Hopefully  I will be feeling a bit better tomorrow.
