Prep Time: 15 minutes

Curing Time: 60-90 minutes


  • 1 lb raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice (about 5 limes)
  • ½ cup Pacifico
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Roma tomatoes, diced small
  • 1 avocado, seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeño, minced
  • ½ cup red onion, minced
  • ½ bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin, toasted
  • 6 oz crab meat
  • ¼ cup olive oil


Step 1: Cut the shrimp into quarters by slicing each shrimp in half lengthwise, then crosswise.

Step 2: In a metal bowl, combine the shrimp, lime juice, Pacifico, and salt. Mix well and chill for 60-90 minutes to cure the shrimp.

Step 3: While shrimp are curing, combine remaining ingredients, mix well, and chill until needed.

Step 4: Once cured, the shrimp will appear bright white and firm. Drain the liquid, keeping ½ cup.

Step 5: Combine the vegetable-crab meat mixture with the shrimp. Add the reserved curing liquid and mix well.

Serve immediately with tortilla chips and an ice cold Pacifico.
