Easy Shrimp Ceviche Recipe

Last month I taught a cooking class here in Boston and this Tropical Shrimp Ceviche was a major hit. Generally speaking, ceviche uses raw seafood, but in this ceviche I used precooked shrimp. Not everyone at your dinner party may be up for raw, so I make it this way to accommodate all my guests. It is absolutely the perfect no cook appetizer to make when entertaining! It also is put together in under 15 minutes and in one bowl! Trust me, you’re going to love this!

I love the citrus in this dish! When I am feeling under the weather one of my go to routines is to bust out my simple hand juicer and have some fresh squeezed OJ. I supplement with vitamin C daily, but there’s just something about fresh squeezed orange juice that makes me feel all happy and healthy. Alternatively, when I am making a dish for company I go right to oranges for the bright color and perfect citrus flavor.

  1. I LOVE oranges. If I could put an orange into every meal I would! I love eating them raw but I have been loving them in salads and smoothies as well!

  2. This ceviche is gorgeous!! I love ceviche, it is probably one of my favorite dishes on the planet. And I never would have thought of adding orange to it. Such a great idea! 🙂

    My son’s high school marching band sells Florida citrus as a fundraiser each fall, so I gorge on oranges for several weeks. I’ve put them in everything from muffins to meatballs to cookies, but I think my favorite way is just to peel it and eat it.
    Thanks for including my orange-spiked beet and walnut spread in your round up. The ceviche looks so fresh and pretty–how clever to use precooked shrimp. That would ease my spouse’s concerns about raw fish.

  4. I love an orange and avocado salad — this looks like a delicious upgrade!

  5. I’m so excited that it’s going to Ceviche and Margarita season here soon – this one looks great! Thanks for including my recipe – have a good weekend 🙂

  6. My favorite way to have orange is juice! I LOVE orange juice!!! I also love squeezing orange over chicken and roasting it! SOOO good!

    Do you think I could make this in the morning, stick in the refrigerator and then pull it out a few hours later for a cook out?

  8. Kendall says:

    Hi. Just came across your blog on Pinterest. If using raw shrimp, do we have to cook it prior to mixing it into this recipe? Or how does it work so no one gets any foodborn illness?

    O!M!G! Having just developed a love of Ceviche, I was thrilled to find your recipe! Not only is is beautiful…it is PERFECT! Delicious! Refreshing!! I served in soft tortillas as a taco. A bit messy but fantastic!! Oh, and btw, for me, your prep time was a bit off. Took me an hour! But thanks so much for the new favorite recipe!
