Keywords: gluten-free, healthy, diabetes, anti-inflammatory

Serves: 4-6

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Equipment: small mixing bowl, large mixing bowl, cutting board, knife


  • 1 lb raw shrimp 
  • Juice of 3-4 limes 
  • 4 roma tomatoes, diced  
  • ½ red onion, diced 
  • 1-2 jalapeno peppers, seeds removed finely chopped 
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped 
  • 1-2 avocados 
  • Salt 
  • Pepper 
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Tostada or tortilla chips  


  1. Prepare and chop the shrimp into ½ inch pieces and place in a non-reactive metal or plastic bowl. 
  2. Juice the limes and pour it over the shrimp. Set aside and let marinate for at least 15 minutes to “cook” the shrimp.
  3. Cut and prepare the tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro as instructed above and place in a large bowl.
  4. Add shrimp with lime juices to the large bowl with chopped ingredients.
  5. Season to taste with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder and let marinate an additional 15 minutes minimum.
  6. Dice avocado and incorporate into ceviche. Serve immediately with tostadas or tortilla chips.


  • Alternatively, you can poach the shrimp and then marinate in the lime juices.
  • You can play around with the amount of lime juice and vegetables you prefer in your ceviche.
  • Leftovers should be stored in the fridge for 1-2 days.


  • Make sure the bowls used are non-reactive metal, glass, ceramic, or plastic. Using a reactive metal bowl will result in a metallic taste.  
  • Keeps for 2 days refrigerated.

Nutrition Notes:

  • This shrimp ceviche recipe is light and refreshing and can be eaten as lunch or even a side dish. The tomato and onion are good sources of Vitamin C and the cilantro packs a ton of vitamin K!

Savings Tip:

  • Try swapping the shrimp in this recipe for cod. This fish is a lower cost alternative and tastes great!
