Ceviche is a method where the acids from the juices will cook the shrimp. You will see it go

from the gray color of raw shrimp to the white-cooked color over time. The acid does the same

thing to the proteins that heat does. If you aren’t comfortable with the “raw” method, you can

poach the shrimp first to cook them before marinating them in the rest of the ingredients.
