In the following image you can see the ingredients that we will need to prepare these delicious shrimp with Nayarit-style aguachile.
Let's start with perfectly clean fresh shrimp.
For this, we make sure to completely remove the digestive tract from the shellfish, which is dark in color and is located in the upper part of the shrimp. Carefully, with the help of a knife, we open this part slightly and clean it very well.
On the other hand, in the blender, we make a sauce with the juice of the lemons together with the green chilies we will cut into small pieces, deveined and seedless. We also add a pinch of salt and pepper and proceed to mix until obtaining a light and homogeneous puree.
Now, in a deep bowl, we place our clean shrimp and bathe them with the puree that we have just prepared. We leave marinate the shrimp until a color change is observed, this will be between 10 and 15 minutes.
Meanwhile we take the cucumbers and the red onion and start slice them into slices thin.
After the shrimp marinating time, we incorporate the vegetable that we just cut and mix everything very well.
Drain the excess liquid and serve the shrimp in aguachile Nayarit style. We can accompany it with some delicious crispy toasts.
