Mango Shrimp Ceviche

It's almost Summer time, and I'm craving something refreshing. Nothing beats ceviche.

*Serves 2*

1/2 pound Raw Shrimp
1 Mango
1/2 Cucumber
1/2 Sweet Onion
1 Avocado
1 Red Bell Pepper
1/2 Lemon (DO NOT use fake squeeze bottle lemon won't work.)
1 Lime (Same goes with the bottled crap.)
1/4 cup Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Coarse salt to taste

Peel and de-vein the raw shrimp and place in a shallow dish. Squeeze the juice of one whole lime and one half lemon on top of the shrimp and sprinkle with a pinch of coarse salt. Place this dish in the fridge for 2-3 hours, tossing as needed to "cook" the shrimp. While waiting on the shrimp, peel and chop the cucumber, mango, avocado, bell pepper, and onion into small cubes. Once the shrimp appear orange in color, remove them from the fridge and mix in all of the chopped ingredients, cilantro and spices. Add more cayenne pepper if you like more spice. Serve cold.
