Weight Watchers Avocado and Shrimp Ceviche Recipe



Weight Watchers Avocado and Shrimp Ceviche Recipe a dish that checks all the boxes: it’s nutritious, delicious, and seriously easy to whip up.

Here’s what you’ll need: fresh shrimp and a heap of citrus fruits – lemons, limes, and oranges. This citrus trio works magic on the shrimp, giving them a tangy twist. Add to the mix tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, and a serrano or jalapeno pepper for a bit of a kick.

The finishing touch? Creamy avocado and crisp cucumber, added just before serving for the perfect balance of textures.

The great thing about this ceviche is that it’s so versatile. Serve it solo as a refreshing appetizer, or as a side to your favorite grilled dishes. If you’re thinking about drinks, a chilled white wine or a crisp beer pairs really well with it.

And here’s a tip for making this ceviche the best it can be: it’s all about marination. Let your shrimp hang out in the citrus juices for enough time to soak up all the flavor.

When it’s time to add your avocado and cucumber, do it right before serving to keep them fresh and crunchy.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not a fan of cilantro. What else can I use?

No problem, try fresh parsley or mint instead.

How long does the ceviche keep in the fridge?

It’s best eaten the day it’s made, but it can keep for up to 2 days.

Can I use other seafood?

Sure, scallops, white fish, or octopus would work too. Just make sure it’s super fresh.

Is this dish spicy?

That’s up to you. The heat comes from the chili, so use less or skip it if you prefer things on the milder side.
