At this point I have been preparing shrimp aguachiles, so many times I have lost count. Still unsure what shrimp aguachiles are? Ceviche! Shrimp cooked gently in fresh lime juice.
Still on the seafood fence cooked in lime juice?
I was also skeptical and afraid to prepare it, much less eat it, a year ago. I'm still alive to talk about it after eating seafood this way many, many times, lol! But for some, it is the texture of the shrimp that they do not prefer when cooked in this way. Completely understandable. My husband is a people.
Ceviche? Cebiche? It is seafood cooked in lime juice.
The difference with aguachiles or chile water is that it is not just lime juice. It is mixed or mixed with various hot chili peppers. The most popular chili pepper to use is serrano. I absolutely love the taste of habanero!
If you have the choice between key or regular pockets, choose the key glue! Most times they are more juicy and the taste is better! More popular to use in Mexican cooking as well.
Coconut water mixed with fresh lime and sliced habaneroShrimp should take no more than 15 minutes to be ready! 20 minutes tops as long as it is completely covered with lime juice.Lies are marinated quickly. If you leave them on for too long, the liquid will turn pink.Some people prefer aguachile coated with no extra lime juice on the plate.I like the subtle hints of coconut flavor from the coconut water. If I had thought about it, I would have added some freshly shaved coconut.The black sesame seeds were not toasted and did not really add any extra flavor. I used them more for presentation.
