Easy Shrimp Ceviche

As I have mentioned before, I follow lots of foodies and bloggers on Instagram.  I started following the Primal Gourmet when I did Whole 30.  He is an amazing chef and has such wonderful recipes.  You should totally follow him.  

I had never made ceviche before - always worried about the shrimp/fish "cooking" in the citric juice.  I tried it and we loved it.  The Primal Gourmet uses several different citrus fruits.  I couldn't find a grapefruit or tangerine at the time so I just did limes and oranges and it was still amazing! You totally need to try this Shrimp Ceviche - what a great, summer, refreshing meal.  I also didn't make homemade plantains chips.  Trader Joe's has several varieties of Plantain chips - I liked the Plantain Crisps!  Visit Primal Gourmet  for his amazing ceviche details, for the homemade Plantain Chip recipe and so many other amazing recipes!

Easy Shrimp Ceviche - adapted from the Primal Gourmet

1 lb shrimp, peeled, deveined and finely chopped (I used the frozen Argentinian shrimp from Trader Joes, already peeled and deveined)

zest and juice of 1 tangerine

zest and juice of 1 medium orange

zest and juice of 1/2 large grapefruit

zest of 1 lime

juice of 3 limes

2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped

2 jalepenos, seeded and finely chopped

1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro

kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

1 avocado, diced

In a bowl, combine the chopped shrimp, lime zest/juice, tangerine zest/juice, orange zest/juice, grapefruit zest/juice and season with 1/2 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.  Stir to combine.  Cover and let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or until the shrimp are firm and opaque. Add the tomatoes, jalapeños and cilantro.  Toss to combine.  Taste for seasoning and add salt/pepper if desired.  Cover and refrigerate 15 minutes or until chilled to desired temperature. When ready to serve, gently stir in the avocado and toss to combine.  Serve with plantain chips.  Enjoy!
