Step by Step Method

Step 1

Using a small, sharp knife, butterfly the shrimp open.

Step 2

Rinse shrimp in cold water.

Step 3

Pat dry with paper towels and set aside while you prep the remaining ingredients.

Step 4

In a blender, place the chiles, lime juice, 3 tbsp of the water, half the cilantro and a teaspoon of salt.

Step 5

Process until the chiles are just broken up; it doesn’t need to be a smooth paste.

Step 6

Place shrimp in a shallow glass dish or ceramic bowl (not metal).

Step 7

Pour sauce over shrimp, stirring to mix well.

Step 8

Marinate in the refrigerator 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, to allow the lime juice to “cook” the shrimp.

Step 9

The outside of the shrimp will turn white and opaque when they are ready.

Step 10

Meanwhile, cut cucumber in half lengthwise.

Step 11

Scrape out seeds with a spoon and discard.

Step 12

Cut cucumber into 1/4 inch thick slices.

Step 13

Set aside.

Step 14

When ready to serve, spoon shrimp and sauce onto a serving platter.

Step 15

Layer the cucumbers and onions over the top or around the edges, or gently stir them into the shrimp mixture.

Step 16

Sprinkle with the remaining cilantro, cover and chill for 15 more minutes to blend the flavors.

Step 17


Step 18

Salt and black pepper to taste.
