This is my go-to dish to bring to all my friends’ parties, it always disappears fast even if I quadruple the recipe! It’s very similar to a ceviche, some may even argue that it is a ceviche only instead of the shrimp cooking in lime juice, I used cooked shrimp. It’s perfect for all types of diets – Whole30, Paleo, Keto, Gluten Free, Dair Free and Pescatarian and it’s delicious.

A Few Notes

  • Serve this as an appetizer or light meal. You can put this over a tostada to make it more substantial.
  • If I’m making this for a party, I usually double or triple the recipe.
  • To make ahead, combine all the ingredients except for the avocado and cilantro and keep this refrigerated, then add them just before serving.
  • If using raw shrimp, you can roast them in the oven. To roast preheat the oven to 400F. Spray 2 large nonstick baking trays with cooking spray and add the shrimp, tossed with a little olive oil. Roast in a single layer 6 to 8 minutes or until the shrimp turns opaque. Let it cool then continue.
