Cook the shrimp by filling a saucepan with water, adding the onion chunks, garlic cloves, 2 tablespoons salt and black pepper and bringing it to a boil.
Pick out the shrimp with intact tails and set aside to use for garnish. If the shrimp are large, cut them in half lengthwise to make them easier to eat.
In another bowl, combine the diced onion, jicama, cucumber, tomato, avocado, jalapeno or serrano pepper (if using), and cilantro.
