Mango and Shrimp Ceviche
with kiwi and strawberry smoothie
Ceviche is one of our favorite summer dishes because there's no heat needed! The acidity of lime juice is all it takes to 'cook' tender shrimp, which we surround with lots of other delicious flavors and colors for a bright summer dish. Finish with a smoothie for a perfect summer dinner.

Very filling and pretty easy to make.0 Helpful
Used tilapia instead of shrimp -- loved the mango, very good. Smoothie could have been sweeter -- I find that strawberries never seem sweet enough.0 Helpful
Husband made this and he liked it -- and he's a tough critic! Ceviche is something he often orders at restaurants. I enjoyed the smoothie!0 Helpful
Very tasty, very summery (w/ smoothie). Next time, definitely cut the pieces of everything smaller dipping with chips. = more prep. Larger pieces of shrimp take longer to 'cook', becomes nerve racking eating it raw. So good tho.0 Helpful
I left the shrimp in the lime juice for longer than called for--probably 40 minutes total. I thought it would be too sour for the kids but just goes to show enough mango can do magic. Left out the jalapeno though.0 Helpful
Didn't care for the smoothie, and my shrimp didn't "cook" all the way in the lime juice so I had to give them a quick flash in the pan. But the ceviche was to die for! Would definitely make it again.0 Helpful
