Traditional shrimp ceviche is made by “cooking” raw shrimp in the acid of citrus juice, like lime or grapefruit. In this costal take on the classic recipe, the shrimp are instead gently cooked in boiling water and cooled before bathing in a creamy marinade of coconut milk. The result: a recipe so easy and refreshing that it will transport you to a breezy beach-side café after one silky bite.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in large, non-metallic bowl, stir together coconut milk, lemon juice, hot sauce and Sazón; season to taste with Adobo. Stir in red bell pepper, red onion, jalapeño, garlic and chopped cilantro. Add cooled shrimp to coconut mixture; stir to completely cover and submerge shrimp in liquid.
