Ceviche de Camarón (Prawn Ceviche)

Hola amigos! We are still on holidays in Mexico, we are having such a good time that we do not want to go back to London, but soon we will have to face reality and we will have to go back 🙁 but in the meantime I am trying not to think of that and we are enjoying our time with my family.

Today my brother-in-law is in town! And he is the expert on making prawn ceviche, so I asked him if he could do some and he was more than happy to make it and sharing with me the recipe.
