Summer is the perfect time to embrace no-cook dishes. When it's 90 degrees outside and the idea of using your oven, stove, or grill makes you want to cry (or eat ice cream for every meal), you can always rely on recipes — like this bright, tangy ceviche — that don't require any cooking.

Ceviche is the ultimate no-cook dish. You marinate bite-sized pieces of raw shrimp in lime juice, and through a process called denaturation — where the citric acid from the lime juice changes the proteins in the shrimp — they become opaque and firm. This ceviche has fresh lime and orange juice, but the cool, creamy avocado helps temper all the acidity.

Whether you're entertaining guests or just need to get dinner on the table in the midst of a heatwave, shrimp ceviche is a summer lifesaver.
