A sugar-free and satisfying ceviche recipe that is guaranteed to hit the spot. While traditional ceviche has the juice of the citrus "cook" the fish, this one boils the shrimp for a couple of minutes first to have it ready quicker and to also ensure it's safe to eat. 

Feel free to serve this with tortilla chips (plantain or cassava if AIP), or just eat it straight out of the bowl as I do!

Fun Health Facts

Shrimp contains essential vitamins, minerals, and is a powerhouse of protein. Known for its high omega-3 fatty acids, shrimp is believed to help increase heart, bone, and brain health. 

Limes are rich in both vitamin C and antioxidants. They are thought to increase immunity, improve iron absorption, and prevent kidney stones.

Avocados are a special fruit because they're a superfood loaded with healthy fats. Studies have shown that their high-fat content helps you to absorb more nutrients from other plants. They are also rich in potassium (even more so than bananas!), reducing your risk for high blood pressure, heart attacks, and kidney failure.

 Tips & Tricks

  • Hand squeeze your limes! Why? If you use a traditional juicer, the chance of getting unwanted rind into the juice is very likely. This creates a bitter taste that ruins the entire recipe. Trust me...I did it way too many times before finally figuring it out.

  • If you would prefer to allow the limes to "cook" the shrimp, combine everything into the bowl and let marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours before consuming. You'll know it's ready when the shrimp is opaque in color.

  • Chop everything into small, bite-sized pieces for maximum flavor.
