When I lived in Florida I worked at a little martini bar and restaurant and absolutely fell in love with seafood. There’s just something about living on the ocean and how fresh shrimp, salmon, and other seafood can taste. One of my favorite dishes at the restaurant was Ceviche. It can be made with fish or shrimp and it utterly amazing. The meat cooks in citrus juices to create a bright flavor that is second to none. It’s healthy, amazing, and oh so pretty. This Ceviche Style Shrimp Cocktail is a play on that kind of recipe…using orange and lime just to cook the shrimp but adding in ketchup/tomato, cilantro, and other spices to bring a shrimp cocktail flair. Instead of chopping the shrimp and creating more of a ceviche dip, we left them whole for more of a shrimp cocktail appearance. We just LOVE to have this beautiful appetizer on our holiday tables, and it’s gone in no time!

If you love shrimp than I’m confident you’ll be OBSESSED with this Ceviche Style Shrimp Cocktail. I remember my grandparents having traditional Shrimp Cocktail every Christmas Eve at their house. Then men would stand around it eating the shrimp until they were gone. I always thought it was so gross! Well that feeling is in the past. I’m a huge fan now…especially when the shrimp is cooked in citrus juices. It’s just so tasty I can’t describe it in a way that does it justice. You’ll just have to try it for yourself!
