Low-Carb Shrimp Ceviche Recipe

Low-Carb Shrimp Ceviche Recipe

Ingredients for 5 servings

* Optional Substitution Note

  • 1 1/4 lb raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Broth (Tiger’s Milk)
    • 2/3 cup (about 6 limes) fresh lime juice (or more/less to taste)
    • juice from 2 navel oranges
    • 2 tablespoons hot sauce (I used Cholula)
      • Substitute: ketchup, tomate sauce
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 1 green (or colorful) bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • 3 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped leaves


Step 1

Bring a large pot of salt water to a boil.  Toss in the raw shrimp and cook for no more than 2 minutes, or until the shrimp is white, pink and plump.  Immediately remove the shrimp from the boiling water using a spider or a slotted spoon and plunge the shrimp into a large bowl of ice water to stop it from cooking.

Step 2

Mix together fresh ingredients for the broth and set aside to let the flavors meld.  Feel free to customize it to your liking but I recommend just trying it as is if this is your first time making it.

Step 3

Add all of the ceviche ingredients to a large bowl.  I like using stainless steel because it keeps it extra cold in the fridge.  Chop up the shrimp into smaller pieces, about 1/2-inch (or cut each shrimp into 3 equal parts), then add it to the large bowl.

Step 4

Fold everything together gently using a wooden spoon, then pour in the sauce and gently fold everything together again.

Step 5

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, then store in the fridge for at least 2 hours; but, you can enjoy it sooner, after about 30 minutes so the flavors can meld together and so the citrus juice can remove the “bite” from the onion.

Step 6

Season to taste with sea salt & pepper and enjoy!

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
