Homemade Shrimp Ceviche


Every time my husband goes on a fishing trip, there’s never enough fish recipes to get through all the fish!

Even with our Fish Taco Bowl, Baked Fish, Seared Fish in full rotation, in the end, we still have some fish leftover so those are the time I make a big ol batch of this Easy Shrimp Ceviche recipe!

Whenever I made it, friends and family would always rave about it and ask how I made it!

Since I know not everyone has access to fresh fish all the time, I created a very easy and simple recipe that replaces the fish with very accessible frozen shrimps!

Of course, if you do happen to have fresh fish, by all means add it into this recipe!  But just make sure you stick with fresh pelagic white meat like your whitefish, mahi-mahi, wahoo, cod, snapper etc.

Once you get the fish/shrimp selection figured out, we just throw that in with some tomatoes, onions, avocados, cilantro, salt and pepper and of course, the limes to ‘cook’ the fish!

Super easy, simple and delicious that’s packed with zesty goodness balanced by avocado oils and the optional flour tortilla, a perfect side dish or party snack that we hope you enjoy!
