Cahuamanta is a typical Mexican seafood dish made with manta ray and shrimp. It is usually prepared as soup, containing manta ray, shrimp and vegetables. It can be also be prepared as tacos. When the broth is served alone, it is called vichy taken from the Yaqui language word that means "naked."

Originally, the main ingredient was sea turtle, but due to it being placed on the endangered species list its hunting has been outlawed. Since then, manta ray and shrimp, have become the main ingredient.

This food was first served in the city of Los Mochis, Sinaloa.
