  • 1 lb raw shrimp no shells
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 grapefruit peeled and diced
  • 2 oranges peeled and diced
  • 1 cucumber sliced and diced
  • 1/2 small red onion diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeds and pith removed, fined diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves chopped
  • salt to taste


  • avocado


  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. While you're waiting for that, fill up a large bowl with ice and water and set aside.
  • Place the shrimp in the boiling water and cook for one minute. Use a skimmer to remove the shrimp to the ice water bath. Once the shrimp have fully cooled, drain the water through a colander.
  • Pour the lime juice, lemon juice and orange juice into a large bowl and add the shrimp. Give them a stir and place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to marinate.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl of shrimp and stir everything together. Garnish with avocado before serving.



  • It's best to use freshly squeezed juice for this recipe, rather than bottles of lime, lemon and orange juice. With such few ingredients, you really want the flavors to shine.
  • In the video above, you'll see that I make supremes with the citrus slices. I do think this makes a difference in the final recipe and is worth the extra effort.
  • If you're wondering, this is my favorite skimmer and I use it in many recipes.
