  • 1 cup fresh lime juice (from 8 to 10 limes)
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice (from 2 oranges)
  • 3/4 pound medium unpeeled shrimp
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt, plus more if needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar, plus more if needed
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 navel oranges, peel and pith removed, cut into segments
  • 1 pink grapefruit, peel and pith removed, cut into segments
  • 1 jalapeno chile, thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and cut into thin wedges
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves


  1. Combine snapper, lime juice, and orange juice in a small glass bowl, making sure that fish is fully submerged in the juices. Cover, and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

  2. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, and add shrimp. Cover, turn off heat, and let shrimp cook 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water, and let sit 5 minutes to cool. Peel, devein, and cut shrimp in half lengthwise.

  3. Drain fish well. Transfer to a large glass bowl, and add shrimp. Add salt, sugar, and oil. Fold in orange and grapefruit segments, jalapeno, tomatillos, and cilantro. Season with a pinch more salt or sugar if necessary.
