Easy fish and shrimp ceviche! It truly is easy to prepare a delicious ceviche when you have fresh ingredients. This post is going to be be short and sweet(not really sweet), but you get the idea. I will confess that I use alot of frozen seafood for my recipes because of where I live. Let’s just say the the fresh seafood is not abundant! So, when I do come across fresh seafood, especially fish, my thoughts immediately go to ceviche. One of my favorite and inexpensive varieties of fish is catfish. I especially enjoy blackened catfish! But why not in ceviche? It was absolutelty delicious. No complaints here! If you are not crazy about the idea of eating seafood cooked in lime juice, just check out my notes in the recipe for an easy solution to that.
Easy Fish and Shrimp Ceviche
- 1 pound catfish sliced into 1/2 pieces
- 10-12 jumbo shrimp butterflied
- 12 large limes

- salt and pepper
- Mexican-stle hot sauce valentina, tapatio
- Tostadas chips or saltines
- Combine the fish and shrimp in a glass bowl. Add the juice of 6 limes, enough to cover the seafood. Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Fish and shrimp should be opaque when ready.
- Drain and discard the juice from the seafood. This is optional. Mix in the juice of the remaining limes. Add the remaining ingredients in the order listed. Taste for salt. Garnish with avocado and a Mexican-style hot sauce, Serve with tostadas, chips or saltines.

Can I use frozen shrimp to make ceviche? 🙂
Suzie, absolutely you can. Just find a good quality shrimp. Defrost and clean it well, making sure you rinse in really cold water before using it.
Looks yummy!! Why is it important to drain the juice from the seafood?
For me it’s just a personal choice to drain it and add fresh juice. Many places will actually drain it and serve it in shot glasses. And some other restaurants drain it to serve a more dry ceviche that is dressed with a little oil. If you want to leave it it, that’s ok too.
Thank you! Made some today and it’s addicting! I kept the juice 🙂
Awesome!! Now I need to make some more!
