Recipe was created by my family many years ago. I have tried several shrimp ceviches...none like this one!!
Shrimps             (the best kind are the Tiger Shrimps)
Onions                       (purple onion is the best)
Worcestershire Sauce         (Lea&Perrins no substitute)
Soy Sauce                   (Kikkoman is better )         Ketchup
Hot Pepper       (for Ceviche the best is Habanero or Scotch Bonnett)
Tabasco hot sauce
Salt & Pepper
Boil the shrimps until they are red. Clean and cut the shrimps into small size pieces. Chop the onion into small pieces. Mix the two (choose your ratio 4 parts of shrimps to 1 onion).

Add enough lime juice until you cover 2/3 of the depth of the container where the shrimps are. Start adding the soy sauce and the Lea&Perrins, balancing the two flavors (soy sauce adds a bitter and salty taste while Worcestershire sauce will give an acid and tangy flavor). The mixture should have an acid and bitter and salty taste,.. well balanced. Once you are “satisfied” with the flavor balance, start adding Ketchup. Ketchup is sweet so it “neutralizes” the acidity form the Lea&Perrins and the lime juice. Ketchup also adds body to the final “sauce” . Once you like your final flavor… it is time to add the fire… that is the hot pepper. Chop the pepper and add it to the mixture. Add enough to your taste (my wife and I differ on the level). Also add some Tabasco sauce. The two flavors blend to a nice blend of “hot” flavor. Add some black pepper and salt if needed. Put in the fridge and cool for a couple of hours (the longer you keep in the fridge, the less effect of the heat of the peppers and the “thicker” the sauce will get).
