Today I made my dad a big batch of shrimp ceviche for his birthday. It’s something I knew he would love as soon as I made it at a Fresh & Easy cooking night I attended. I you’ve never tried ceviche, this is definitely the perfect recipe to make your introductions. Using cooked shrimp instead of the traditional raw seafood, it’s super easy and delicious.
While I’m talking about Fresh & Easy (by far my favorite grocery store), I have to thank them for helping our elementary school earn an easy $1000 through their “Shop for Schools” program as other stores are canceling their programs (Albertsons Community Partners). That money makes a big difference for the kids at our school.

o 1 package fresh&easy 31/40 Cooked Shrimp
o 1 cup fresh lime juice
o ½ cup fresh orange juice
o 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
o 1 jalapeno, stemmed and roughly chopped
o 1 medium ripe avocado, pitted, flesh removed from skin and chopped into ½” cubes
o ¼ cup packed fresh&easy Sun Dried Tomatoes, chopped (I used fresh tomatoes today)
o 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped in ¼” cubes
o ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, stems removed (I forgot the cilantro today and it was still delicious!)
o 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
o Salt and pepper to taste
o Décor: 1 bag fresh&easy Blue Corn Tortilla Chips
1. Combine shrimp, lime juice and orange juice in a large resealable bag and let sit for 30 minutes to one hour. If shrimp is too big for your liking, chop into smaller pieces.
2. Once shrimp has marinated, toss them in a large glass or stainless steel bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
3. Toss well and season with salt and pepper.
4. Refrigerate until ready to serve, no longer than a couple of hours. Serve in margarita glasses with fresh&easy Blue Corn Tortilla chips.
**While I received a night of yummy food and a bag of goodies from Fresh & Easy, I was in no way compelled to write this post or talk about their Shop for School program. I loved this recipe and couldn’t wait to share it. I also love Fresh & Easy and have been shopping there since the store opened in our neighborhood about a year ago and I truly appreciate how they have helped our school.
