Happy last day of March y'all and welcome to another blog post series of Missmisschelle's Healthy Eats! For this month's recipe, I've partnered up with MilkAndEggs once again to share with you all how to make this bombtastic Shrimp Ceviche dish from the comfort of your own home. Honestly, this recipe is so easy to make and the combination of fresh shrimp and chopped vegetables marinated in a citrusy flavoring served on a crisp Cabo Chip is JUST the type of snack I crave after an exhausting workout or tiring work day. Additionally, I love how this appetizer tastes a lot more fresh and lightweight than your typical heavy dip that you purchase from your local grocery store. Now, let's get on with the recipe!

- 1 lb. medium shrimp (thawed or fresh), peeled & deveined
- squeezed lime juice (1-2 limes)
- squeezed lemon juice (1-2 lemons)
- 1/3 red onion, chopped
- 3/4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 avocado, chopped
1) Boil 4 quarts of water in a large pot. Add the shrimp & cook for 1 minute in boiling water. Do not overcook the shrimp. Remove shrimp from pot & place into a bowl of ice water immediately.
2) Drain the shrimp. Cut each piece of shrimp in 1/2 or 1/3 sized pieces. Place cooked shrimp in a large bowl. Add the lime and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3) Mix in the chopped red onion. Refrigerate for an additional half hour.
4) Right before serving, add the chopped cilantro, chopped avocado, and pepper for seasoning.

Because there are so many vegetables incorporated into this dish, I love how you are able to pick and choose which exact ingredients to put in your Shrimp Ceviche appetizer. In my Shrimp Ceviche recipe, I decided to take out the peppers and focus more on an overall citrusy flavor instead of a spicy one. If you do decide to try this recipe out for yourself, let me know in the comments section below if you try out my recipe, the traditional recipe, or if you decided to create an alternative recipe of your own!
