15 Minute Easy Shrimp Ceviche

Sharing is caring!

This Easy 15 Minute Shrimp Ceviche will hit every craving button you have ever had.

A couple of years ago when I went to San Francisco with Nutrish for our Advocate Group Meeting, they took us to this amazing cooking class where I was introduced to Shrimp Ceviche.

Since that time, it has been in the back of my mind begging me to make it. I finally got around to doing that this week so I thought I would share how easy it is to make and how amazingly delicious it is.

The moment that our chef let me taste this fresh appetizer dish, I was in pure heaven. I have always liked shrimp, but I thought it was raw in this recipe so I have avoided it like the plague.

How to make Easy Shrimp Ceviche

Then I found out that it is actually cooked. The lime juice that the shrimp is marinated in actually cooks the shrimp and makes it so tender.

The acidity in the lime juice cooks the shrimp to a perfect tender bite.

The crunch of the cucumber, onion, and jalapeño blend perfectly with the delicate shrimp and creamy avocado.

You can use this to top crackers, place in cucumber cups, put inside of tortilla chip cups, or you can just be like me and eat it without anything! It is just that good.

The thing about this dish is that it is so pretty and elegant, that it would be great to serve at a wedding!

This recipe only takes 15 minutes to prepare and your guests will be wowed at your culinary dish!

  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 Avocado, diced

  2. Combine the onion, cucumber, jalapeño, tomato and cilantro in a large bowl. Add the shrimp and stir to combine.
  3. Season with salt to taste. Enjoy!
