Get ready to nail the healthy side dish conundrum with a batch of delicious Avocado Shrimp Ceviche!
This tasty dish is loaded with healthy fats, complex carbs, protein and a slew of vitamins and minerals to keep you going strong. It is no secret that I LOVE Mexican food, so I am always looking for great ways I can enjoy it more often, and this clean eats dish definitely let's me do just that!

The great thing about this avocado shrimp ceviche is it can served as a side dish, dip, or a hearty meal all on its own. It can also be created in a variety of ways - from the more creamy guac style dip or the more traditional ceviche where you leave the avocado dices along with the shrimp, tomato and cucumber, for more of a salad. You can even add some fresh mango or pineapple for a bit of fun seasonal flair! YUM!
