Wanna wow your friends or spouse AND support their health in a tasty way? Two words: shrimp ceviche.
Trust me, bringing a big bowl of this shrimp ceviche to your next group hang will go over way better than a tray of raw veggies and hummus…and it only takes 30 minutes to put together!
Shrimp is favorite of our household, and we make this shrimp ceviche all the time, especially in the summer months. These little shellfish superstars are a quick and easy protein source that’s also loaded with some good nutrition in the way of selenium, copper, choline, and b12 — all key players in thyroid health, energy production, fertility support, and fighting off oxidative stress, so you can say “see ya!!!” to fatigue and inflammation and “nice to see ya” to more energy, a stronger metabolism, and better health.
Pair that stacked nutrition lineup with all the other tasty flavors in this ceviche, and the fact that it requires very minimal cooking, and it’s a win-win-win all around that’s sure to be a crowd favorite, especially for those summer hangouts! I suggest serving with tortilla chips, tucking it into some soft butter lettuce leaves, or honestly eating it straight from a spoon (okay, maybe do that when you’re just enjoying it with one other person – not a whole party!).
Who knew that supporting your health could actually taste GOOD?? Trust me, even if you don’t feel super skilled in the kitchen, this IS a meal you can easily make thanks to the simple ingredients and preparation methods.
