Coconut Lime Shrimp Ceviche-
This tangy Coconut Lime Ceviche is my favorite paleo and low carb way to serve shrimp.
One of my favorite, grain free, go- to, foods that I can order at a restaurant is ceviche. I love experimenting with the different kinds of seafood and trying different flavors.
This recipe was inspired by Hawaii and their amazing tropical flavors. This is also fairly low carb too. It can be served in lettuce wraps, on a salad, or in a cocktail glass.
- 1 lb shrimp raw, peeled, deveined, with tail off (small to medium size).
- 6 limes juiced.
- 1 tsp lime zest.

- 2 tbsp cilantro chopped.
- 1/2 cumcumber peeled, seeded and chopped.
- 1/3 cup coconut milk.
- 1 medium size tomato chopped.

- Add lime zest and sea salt to bag, and close bag.
