This Baja Style Shrimp Ceviche is Summers New Best Friend. Ceviche is one of my favorite healthy lean proteins. No cooking means this is an easy protein to prepare. Fresh and tasty shrimp and mixed with spicy, crunchy vegetables makes it easy to eat.
Add This easy to meal prep protein to your rotation.
Ceviche can be made with almost any fresh fish or shrimp.
Traditionally, fresh seafood is cooked by the citrus juice. No heat needed. If you’ve never made ceviche this way, we definitely recommend giving this a try.
If you really can’t convince yourself to cook seafood with lemon juice, then go ahead and use cooked shrimp. We’ll only slightly judge you – crazy germaphobe!
Ceviche is one of our go-to camping recipes.
