This shrimp ceviche was sent into Familia Kitchen by Maria Sagrario Gloria of Illinois. Called Sagra by everyone, she is a talented cocinera and especially gifted at making the traditional Mexican recipes that her mom, Gregoria González, brought with her when she moved to the States central Mexico. Sagra’s mother is one of seven children and learned to cook from her mother, when she was growing up in San Luis Potosí, one of the oldest of seven children. From tacos to enchiladas, Sagra is the keeper of her mom’s family recipes. And this special dish with lime-cured camarón is a favorite with the entire family. And on repeat request.
To keep things spicy, Sagra makes this ceviche with tabasco sauce and hot sauce (that’s right: both, she says), as well as serrano and jalapeño chiles, seeds in. If you like your ceviche on the less picante side, do not worry: all three ingredients are marked optional.
“We eat this ceviche with corn tortilla chips or crackers,” says Sagra.
