DIRECTIONS

  1. Boil shrimps and garlic in water, salted to taste. Remove shrimps from water as soon as they turn pink, and drain. Immerse shrimps in a bowl of icy water for a few minutes to stop the cooking process. Let them rest for a few minutes prior to peeling.

  2. Place shrimps in a glass bowl with lemon juice, and cover with plastic. Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes.

  3. Add onions, tomatoes, radishes, cilantro, Serrano chiles and ketchup to the shrimps, and mix gently. Add avocado and olive oil. Adjust seasoning.

  4. Garnish with lemon slices. Serve on toast.
