Shrimp Ceviche Low-Calorie


Growing up, having ceviche was a family favorite. My mom used to make this often because we all enjoyed it so much. Typically, we would spoon it over rice and let the juices soak up into the rice, but now as an adult I enjoy it just the way it is on its own. Making ceviche is simple and also versatile.


Ceviche can be made with any seafood, but shrimp is my favorite. I’ve tried it with octopus and while it had an interesting texture, the flavor was still good. Feel free to try this with any seafood if you want to try it different ways. It is common to be made with all different types of seafood.



One of my favorite things about this dish is how light and flavorful it is. It is great to enjoy year-round. Now with the summer months coming it doesn’t heat up my house. Ceviche can be enjoyed as an appetizer or a main meal. However, it’s so delicious I think it’s best enjoyed as a main entrée.


Ceviche originated in in South America and can be traced back to Peru and Ecuador. Since my family is from Ecuador, this was a dish we had at different family events growing up. 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.
