This recipe was developed for Zojirushi rice cooker models listed here. Adjustments may be necessary when using other models.


Prepare the shrimp. In a small bowl, place orange and lime juice and mix well. Soak the shrimp in the juice mixture and allow to “cook” - at least 1 hour.


In a separate bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except garnish. Refrigerate and allow to marinade for at least 30 minutes.



Measure the rice accurately and place in the inner cooking pan.



Add water and salt to the inner cooking pan and stir well with rice using the rice spatula. Cook the rice using the "Jasmine Rice" setting. For models that do not have a "Jasmine Rice" setting, cook using the “White Rice” setting.



When rice completes cooking, gently fluff the rice with rice spatula, and spread onto a large plate to cool – about 30 minutes.



Combine the shrimp mixture with the vegetable mixture and mix well. *This mixture may be prepared up to 1 day in advance.



When rice cools, divide 2/3 of the rice into wide glass bowls. Spoon the ceviche mixture evenly over rice. Add the remaining rice on top of the ceviche mixture and garnish each with avocado.
