Shrimp Ceviche

Shrimp Ceviche

Today I was determined to make a new recipe. It’s always been something I’ve loved doing, but over the past year my experiments in the kitchen have dwindled. It seems like it’s hard to find the time these days or something else take precedence, but I really love creating and it’s something I plan to make more time for. Plus, recipes don’t have to be complicated or take hours and I think these 30 minute meals are probably more realistic and functional for most! So you can expect to see quick meals from me in the future.

But I don't eat out that much so I rarely have them. I was looking at some green plantains at the grocery store the other day and suddenly I found myself buying them and dreaming about making tostones when I got home. I wanted to make some sauces to go with them and then I decided I'd add a little protein via shrimp and the next thing I knew I had this beautiful appetizer. I will be making these for any and every party I'm invited to because they turned out better than I even imagined. And don't be intimidated, they're actually super easy to make.
