For the Marinade
Slice a small “X” into the bottom of the tomato skins. Add the tomatoes to a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes to loosen the skins. Remove from heat and cool.
Remove the tomatoes and set them aside. Peel off the skins and discard them.
Set the peeled tomatoes into a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Strain out the seeds, if desired.
Add the pureed tomatoes to a large bowl with the lemon juice, lime juice, orange juice, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, olive oil, salt, pepper, sugar or honey, and hot sauce or pepper puree. Taste and adjust with salt, sugar and hot sauce.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
For the Ceviche
Add the water and scallions to a large pot or saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the raw shrimp and remove from heat. Let stand until the shrimp turn pink, only a few seconds.
Drain the shrimp and set them into cold water. This will stop them from cooking and will keep a softer texture. Discard the scallions.
Chop the shrimp (if desired, you can prepare them whole or slice them in half, though it will increase your marinating time) and add them to the reserved marinade along with the lima beans, chopped peppers and fresh chopped parsley or cilantro. Cover and refrigerate. Marinate for 2-3 hours, or until the shrimp is cooked through.
When read to serve, adjust for salt, pepper, sugar or honey and hot sauce. Top with fresh chopped herbs, red pepper flakes, pickled red onions and serve with salted peanuts and toasted French bread.
- We recommend doing a healthy mix of whole shrimp and cut up shrimp for a textural change in the dish and the whole shrimps make a nice garnish
- You can marinate this bad boy up to a day in advance which makes it even better for cookouts so you can focus on what is important
