Coconut Shrimp Ceviche

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 cafe after one silky bite.]
