In This Recipe
Peel, devein and cut shrimp into 1/4-inch pieces.
Lay out shrimp in the bottom of glass baking dish. Pour lemon and lime juice over them and refrigerate for 2 hours. The acid from the lemons and limes will “cook” the shrimp.
Toss prepared shrimp with the remaining ingredients and refrigerate for one more hour or longer. You can even prepare this overnight allowing all the flavors to fuse together.
