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.

Does the lime have to be fresh-squeezed? Can I use bottled lime juice instead?

This is a fresh, tangy salad- perfect for summer picnics. And no bread necessary! I coarse-chopped the ingredients and made mini lettuce wraps held together with toothpicks. Thanks for the recipe!
