Mango Shrimp Ceviche Recipe for an Easy Appetizer

We’re having Christmas at my house so I feel the need to find healthy holiday recipes like this Mango Shrimp Ceviche recipe. I know that most people don’t think of Christmas as a time to enjoy healthy holiday recipes but it’s totally possible to make something that’s healthy that will also wow your guests. Stay away from the prepared foods and make things from scratch. No, it doesn’t have to take tons of time to cook from scratch either, trust me. You can do it.

Mango Shrimp Ceviche Recipe | Healthy Holiday Recipes

OK so if you’re anything like me, your first question was “What the heck is ceviche?” followed closely by “How the heck do I say that?”  First off, ceviche is a South American dish that typically has marinated raw fish or seafood and is served as an appetizer.  I’m not into raw fish and seafood even if it is marinated so the shrimp in this mango shrimp ceviche recipe is cooked.  Second question, how do you pronounce it? Ceviche is pronounced “Say Vee Chay” with the emphasis on the second syllable. Hope that helps.

I love easy appetizer recipes. When we entertain, I really want to offer guests an appetizer before the main course. But, I want something simple to make and during the summer, I don’t want to heat up the house to cook it.  This easy ceviche recipe is a perfect choice because it requires no cooking. Buy the shrimp pre-cooked from the store along with fresh fruits and vegetables and you are all set.

If you don’t mind turning the oven on, you might want to try my Pizza Puff Appetizers or this easy asparagus appetizer. Or, check this out for more ceviche recipes. If you love seafood, try these easy seafood tacos for dinner one night.
