1 lemon, halved
1 head garlic, halved
3 bay leaves
1-1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled
2 cups coconut milk
1/2 cup lime juice (about 6 to 8 limes), plus more for drizzling
1 red onion, sliced thin
1/2 bunch freshly chopped cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
Make the ceviche: Put a large pot of water over high heat and add the lemon, garlic, bay leaves, peppercorns and salt, to taste. When it comes to a boil add the shrimp and turn off the heat. Let the shrimp poach just until they are cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the shrimp to a sheet pan and refrigerate. When they are cool slice them in half lengthwise. Combine the coconut milk, lime juice, onion, chiles, and cilantro in a large bowl and season it with salt. Add the cooled shrimp and let them marinate, refrigerated, for about 1/2 hour.
