  • 1 qtr [1 lt] of water
  • 1 1/2 lb [640 gr] of freshwater (tiny) shrimp
  • 2 teaspoons of table salt , or to taste
  • 1 cup of lime juice (4-6 limes)
  • 1 cup of orange juice (2-4 oranges)
  • 1 large mango or 2 medium ones , diced
  • 1 large red onion cut into very thin strips
  • 1 red pepper cut into very thin strips
  • A bunch of cilantro , chopped
  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce
  • 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil


  • Pour the water into a pot and add a teaspoon of salt to the water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, once it breaks the boil remove from the heat.
  • Ladle the shrimp into the boiling-hot water. Once the shrimp has turned pink remove immediately from the water and spread on a tray to cool down.
  • Mix the lime and orange juice.
  • When the shrimp has reached room temperature place on a large plastic, ceramic or glass container. Pour the mix of lime and orange juice onto the shrimp, covering them.

  • Cover the container and let the shrimp rest in the fridge for half an hour.
  • Add onion and pepper strips to the shrimp, cover and return for the fridge for another half an hour.
  • Pour the shrimp into a sieve to remove as much of the juices as possible (throw away the juices). Taste, and if you find the taste too acidic, rinse quickly with a cup of ice water.
  • Mix the shrimp with the mango. Season with salt to taste. Keep refrigerated until it's time to serve.
  • Arrange the lettuce on a platter and serve the shrimp mixture on it. Drizzle with the olive oil.
