Easy Shrimp Ceviche

easy shrimp ceviche

If you’re not a big shrimp or seafood person, I’m still quote confident you will LOVE this easy shrimp ceviche recipe. It’s seriously so simple and fool-proof to make, not to mention how perfect this goes with a side of crunchy tortilla chips. I kept this dish pretty simple (because I’m all about easy & quick recipes, but you could get a bit more creative by adding some diced jalapeño for a spicy punch, or add chopped cucumbers for an extra crunch – you really can’t go wrong!

  • 1/2 avocado, cubed
