Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes. When the shrimp is done “cooking” in the lime juice, it should have an opaque color (more white or pinkish, instead of transparent).
Just before serving, gently stir in the diced avocado and cilantro, if adding.
There are a few different options for the shrimp in this recipe. You can use raw shrimp if you desire, as the lime juice "cooks" the shrimp. But while it technically gets cooked in the acid, it doesn't kill off any bacteria since there is no heat involved, so it's important to start off with the best, freshest shrimp you can find if you are using raw. If you are uncomfortable starting this recipe off with raw seafood, it's totally okay to make this with cooked shrimp! Or alternatively, you can parboil the shrimp by dropping it in boiling water for 2-3 minutes until the shrimp is opaque. Then transfer the shrimp to an ice water bath to stop the cooking. Use what option works for you and your family for this one!
