Mr. C. and I are most often are signed up for the appetizers when we go to someone’s house for a gathering. It’s my favorite part of the meal to make so it’s a huge win for me. One of my favorite appetizers is shrimp cocktail. It’s easy and tastes delicious but sometimes I want a bit more flavoring. For a special treat, my new favorite thing to make is shrimp ceviche.
All of the flavors tossed together makes this appetizer so mouth watering. Shrimp ceviche makes THE best cocktail dish. I would highly recommend serving it in a separate dish like a martini glass or a cute appetizer bowl though because you don’t want the juices to get mixed up with your other appetizers.
Enjoy! It’s so yummy!
