2 lbs raw shrimp (deveined, peeled, chopped)
6 lemons (juiced)
1 tablespoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon salt
8 roma tomatoes (seeded and 1/4” diced)
1 small red onion (1/4” diced)
1 cup cilantro (chopped)
3 tablespoons Cholula® Hot Sauce


In a medium mixing bowl combine raw shrimp, lemon juice, garlic and salt. Make sure lemon juice covers the shrimp. The acid in the lemons will cook the shrimp. Let soak for 6 hrs covered in the refrigerator stirring every hour.
Slice pretzel rolls from top to bottom about ¼” thin.
Arrange sliced pretzels on a lined sheet pan and bake @400°F for 7 minutes until dry and crunchy.
When shrimp is white/red and firm (about 4 hrs) drain ¾ of the juice and reserve the last ¼ for the finished ceviche.
Combine cooked shrimp and juice with tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and Cholula®. Adjust salt to taste.
Serve ceviche cold in a bowl with pretzel croutons on the side.
