Growing up, ceviche was a family favorite. My mom made this often since we all enjoyed it so much. Typically, we would spoon the ceviche over rice, but now as an adult I enjoy it just the way it is without a side dish.

Ceviche is simple and also versatile because it can be made with any seafood. However, shrimp is my favorite. 

This fresh and easy ceviche can be enjoyed as an appetizer or a main meal. However, I think it’s hearty enough to be eaten as a main entrée. 

Ceviche originated in in South America and can be traced back to Peru and Ecuador. Different Latin American countries have given ceviche its own touch by tweaking the ingredients or adding their own garnishes. 

Using ketchup is also unique, and this is the way we had it most often growing up.

Is eating shrimp healthy?

Shrimp is high in several vitamins and minerals, and is a rich source of protein. Also, it’s low in calories and contains zero carbs. Most of the calories in shrimp are from protein, with some being from fat.
