Busch Gardens Food & Wine Recipe: Mango Shrimp Ceviche

Seafood lovers are rejoicing to our mango shrimp ceviche at the Food & Wine Festival this year. Our secret ingredient – kimchi base! Check out the full recipe below and don’t forget to serve it in a martini glass. It just makes it so much fancier.

Full ingredient list and instructions below.



Shrimp Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. shrimp
  • 12-oz. bottle of beer
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp. old bay seasoning
  • 12 oz. water
  • 1 cup diced mango
  • 1/2 cup diced euro cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup diced peppers (red or green)
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 diced red onion
  • 1 tbs. chopped parsley
  • 1 tbs. kimchi base
  • 1 whole freshly squeezed lime
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In medium saucepan, bring beer, lemon, old bay seasoning and water to a boil. Then, add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Drain and chill on ice until completely cooled.
  • Combine mango, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, red onion, parsley, kimchi, lime, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  • Add chilled shrimp and refrigerate for at least three hours before serving. The longer it refrigerates, the better it marinates.
