Ceviche of Shrimp at Firefly

As one of the original tapas, this dish has South American influences and is zestier than most that you’ll find. Tiger shrimp is cut into chunks, and combined with chopped red and yellow peppers, cucumbers, jalapeño and cilantro. Then it is chilled and marinated in fresh-squeezed citrus juices. The dish is topped with an avocado slice and accompanied with tortilla rounds for dipping. It is the perfect warm-weather dish. $8.50, 3900 Paradise Road, 369-3971; 9560 W. Sahara Ave., 834-3814.
