Cooked Shrimp Ceviche Recipe – Paleo

Cooked Shrimp (or white fish)  Ceviche

Ceviche is a seafood dish typically prepared with raw fish. I’m sure the curing in citrus juice and spices makes the use of raw seafood safe, but I prefer to use cooked shrimp.

Wild Caught or Farm Raised

Wild Caught shrimp is the way to go when possible, but not all wild caught shrimp is sustainably caught. Ideally, look for shrimp coming from the Pacific Northwest or British Columbia

Farm raised shrimp may be given antibiotics and growth hormones. Farm raised shrimp may come from farms in Asia where standards are questionable and care for the ecosystem is missing. Some farm raised shrimp is raised with strict standards for protecting the environment, but it may be hard to discern from the label.

Fresh or Frozen

Buy frozen shrimp, since the shrimp at the fish counter typically was previously frozen and then thawed and displayed on ice.
