  • 1 lb. medium fresh shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt 18g
  • 1 3/4 cups citrus juice 413g, from 1 orange, 2 lemons, and 6 to 8 limes, divided
  • 1 cup diced fresh mango 2 mangoes
  • ½ cup thinly sliced fresh radish 116g
  • ¼ cup minced red onion 40g
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh Fresno or jalapeño pepper 42g
  • ½ tsp flaky sea salt 3g
  • 1 avocado diced
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro 25g
  • ¼ cup pepitas 30g, toasted
  • Tortilla chips to serve


  • Fill a medium bowl with ice and water. Fill a medium saucepan with water, and bring to a boil over high heat; add 1 tablespoon kosher salt and shrimp.
  • Cook shrimp 1 minute exactly, then drain and immediately place in ice water to stop the cooking process.
  • Let stand 5 minutes; drain. Half shrimp horizontally, or dice if desired.
  • Place shrimp in a medium bowl; pour over 1 ½ cups citrus juice to cover. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
  • Drain citrus juice from shrimp. Stir in mango, radish, onion, pepper, and salt. Stir to combine; taste and add additional salt, if desired.
  • Just before serving, top with avocado and stir in cilantro; top with toasted pepitas. Serve with tortilla chips.



  • Don't marinate the shrimp for more than around 40 minutes or they will overcook and toughen.
  • make sure to not blanch the shrimp for longer than a minute either to avoid overcooking.
  • Use the highest quality shrimp possible for this recipe.
  • I like to cut the shrimp in half horizontally for serving but you can also cut into small sized pieces.
  • If you prefer you can cut the mango, radish, and onion to similar sized pieces for serving.
  • No mango? Pineapple will also work well.
  • Serve with tortillas chips for a fresh and delicious appetizer.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for 1-2 days.
