Low-Carb Mexican Shrimp Ceviche

Step 1To poach the shrimp, fill a medium saucepan with water, add a generous pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. The shrimp will turn pink and opaque. Once done, drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.
Note: Only if you are using very fresh shrimp from reliable sources, you can skip the poaching and let it "cook" in the lime juice (see tips in the post above).

Step 2Place the shrimp in a bowl and add juice of 3 to 4 limes. (You'll only be consuming a small portion of the juice as most will be discarded after marinating.) Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Stir once or twice to make sure all of the shrimp is marinated. Once ready, drain and chop each shrimp into 3-4 pieces. Discard the marinating lime juice.

Step 3Chop the tomatoes. Dice the red onion. Peel and dice the cucumber and the avocado. Halve the jalapeƱos and remove the seeds. Finely dice the jalapeƱos. Chop the fresh cilantro. Place everything into a large mixing bowl.

Step 4Add the chopped shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Add the diced avocado.

Step 5Drizzle with olive oil and toss to combine.

Step 6Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to a day. Serve as an appetizer or a light dish with keto tortilla chips or simply use crunchy lettuce leaves like I did here.
