Easy Shrimp & Avocado Ceviche

Print

Funny story: I used to be terrified to make ceviche at home. I would always order it out at restaurants and loved having it at friend’s houses, but making it on own?? That was a no-go! That was until I had a homemade version and saw that it really is one of the easiest dishes to prepare! So now I’m sharing with you all my fool proof way too make shrimp ceviche that comes out perfect every single time! (And it’s so refreshing for summer too!)

Ceviche is typically a Mexican dish that is made by taking chopped raw fish/shrimp and spices and marinating them in citrus juice until the fish is fully cooked. We usually serve it with tortilla chips or you can also turn it into a tostada too. For the tostadas, simply put a spoonful of mashed avocado on a tostada shell and top it with your ceviche!

It’s mainly served as an appetizer in most restaurant but our family loves it so much that we make a meal out it! Light, refreshing and so perfect for summer! You won’t believe how easy this dish is to make!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Shrimp may have a variety of health benefits. It is high in several vitamins and minerals, and is a rich source of protein. Eating shrimp may also promote heart and brain health due to its content of omega-3 fatty acids and the antioxidant astaxanthin.
