Zesty Shrimp, Avocado, Mango Ceviche Recipe {a healthy + refreshing snack!}

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite healthy snacks,
this Shrimp Ceviche is so easy to make and tastes absolutely delicious!
Made with all fresh ingredients, it's a stunning appetizer to serve at a party...
plus, it looks amazing inside a martini glass FYI!
The lime and cilantro flavors give this recipe a huge kick,
but the mango adds a nice surprise element that really WOW's!
I like to enjoy my ceviche inside corn tortillas or with cucumber!
Be sure to let me know what your family thinks of this recipe...

 Zesty Shrimp, Avocado, Mango Ceviche
  • 1/4 red onion
  • approximately 1lb cooked shrimp 
    {peeled, devained, + chopped}
  • 1-2 jalapeno pepper(s)
  • 1/2 tomato
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  • 2 large ripe hass avocados
  • 1 mango
  • 1 lime {for the juice}
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste
You'll also want to get something to dip -
crackers, cucumber, tortilla chips, taco shells, etc.
whatever floats your boat!

I typically just pan sear my shrimp quickly on medium heat with a dash of olive oil.

Then in a small bowl combine lime juice, red onion, olive oil,
salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
{ I just add a pinch of each spice and add more once I mix the recipe.}
Let them marinate, it will mellow the onion flavor.

In a large bowl mix together the shrimp, jalapeno, tomato, mango, and avocado.
Combine the two bowls, mixing slowly.
 Then add the cilantro + toss.
 Add additional garlic, salt, and pepper if needed.
