Great ceviche!!!! I think the addition of the orange juice is what I liked about it and it gave it a little sweetness.

This is a very good recipe but I would reduce the amount of sauce next time.

My wife and I have made this recipe several times for parties we have given. It is always given high praise by our guests and the recipe is always requested.

We live on the Gulf Coast so the availability of fresh shrimp and crab makes this dish especially delicious.

This one was great! I was looking for an easier ceviche recipe that was still tasty and authentic and this one fit the bill. The only problem I had, was my blender is smaller so I had to chop the vegetables up a bit to make it all fit but no problem. I also only used canned crab and it still came out good but would probably be that much better getting a fresh crab in a store and taking the extra time to crack it. I would try that if I make it again.
