This week is all about sharing my go to easy and healthy recipes with you!
For my first recipe of the week, I wanted to feature my favorite ceviche recipe. Served chilled, this citrusy, refreshing twist on seafood not only taste amazing, but is easy on the waistline. Ceviche typically consists of raw seafood that “cooks” in a marinade. If this makes you uneasy, you can poach the shrimp before putting them into the citrus marinade. However, know that the taste will not be same.
2 pounds of raw shrimp – cleaned, deveined and cut into thirds (21-25 per pound)
10 medium firm roma tomatoes – diced
5 mini cucumbers – peeled and diced
1 medium red onion – diced
1 bunch cilantro – finely chopped
2-3 jalapenos – seeded and diced
Lime Juice from about 15 limes
2 tablespoons of red chili flakes
In a hot frying pan slightly toast red chili flakes for about 45 seconds.
In a blender, blend together: lime juice, toasted red chili flakes, jalapenos, salt and pepper to taste.
Place cleaned and cut shrimp in a bowl add lime juice mixture cover and let sit for about 20 minutes or until shrimp turns pink.
In a separate bowl combine cilantro, onion, tomatoes and cucumber.
When shrimp has turned pink drain about half of the lime juice from bowl and combine with the veggie mixture.
Serve with fresh avocado, eat with chips or over a salad.
