This dish is inspired by a trip I took to Copenhagen in 2017. At a local restaurant I ordered ceviche and what came to the table was different than any ceviche I've ever had - and I LOVED it! I've spent the last few years trying to recreate it and now I'm sharing it here with you! I start by "cooking" the shrimp in a fresh grapefruit juice mixture for 2 hours. The acidity in the grapefruit breaks down the proteins in the shrimp making the shrimp become firm and opaque. Before serving, I added in fresh onion, cilantro, chilies, and pistachios! This dish is so flavorful and refreshing. A perfect no heat snack, lunch, or dinner you'll enjoy all summer long!
