Ever have an appetizer that’s just sooo satisfying and delicious, that you just want to keep noshing on it all night instead of moving onto the main course? Well, why not just have a big ‘ol serving of an amazing appetizer dish for dinner instead!?
I’m really excited to share with you guys this new recipe from the brand-new cookbook, 30 Days of Simple Dinners, from Nourishing Minimalism. Rachel Jones, the author of NourishingMinimalism.com and this awesome new cookbook, has generously allowed me to post one of my favorite recipes so far from the ebook—shrimp ceviche!
I became basically OBSESSED with Rachel’s blog, Nourishing Minimalism, as soon as I came across it. Almost all of her recipes have just 5 ingredients or less. I mean, how easy is that?! I’m really not a gourmet cook, myself, and I’m pretty intimidated by a lot of the recipes in most food blogs I follow. They’re just too complex, and involve too many variables that I’m scared I’ll mess up somehow.
When I google a recipe, it’s always prefaced with the word, “easy.” Like, “easy meatloaf recipe,” or “easy pot roast.” And then they usually have simple ingredients, but it’ll be like, a packet of Italian dressing mix, or canned soup, or other processed stuff that I’m not really into.
But with Nourishing Minimalism’s recipes, they’re not only simple and easy, they’re actually made with healthful ingredients—and they taste amazing! I don’t know how she does it, with only a small handful of ingredients in the recipes. You’d think they might taste a little bland with so few ingredients, but they’re actually perfectly flavorful!
So the new cookbook, 30 Days of Simple Dinners, had me super excited because I knew it was going to be packed with recipes I could actually handle, and that wouldn’t take forever to make. I love this cookbook because it’s not only a cookbook—it’s basically a meal planner, too! This is the summer edition of the cookbook (I can’t wait for the next seasons’ editions!), so all the recipes are made with in-season ingredients and are perfect for summer weather. You could easily cycle through the 30 days of dinners 3 times and have your entire summer’s meals laid out for you!

Onto the ceviche!
Simple Shrimp Ceviche
Makes 4 delicious servings. 🙂
- 4 medium tomatoes, diced
- 1 medium red onion, diced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, diced*
- 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1 pound of shrimp—cooked, deveined, detailed, and chopped
*Rachel’s tip for dicing up that jalapeno is to wear gloves! Apparently, if you cut a jalapeno with your bare hands, it can burn your skin. If that happens, try rubbing a lime over the burn to relieve it. I wasn’t willing to risk it, so I put on some rubber gloves and was fine. Oh, and I’m a big wuss and usually can’t handle spicy things, but one jalapeno with all the seeds removed was totally fine for me in this recipe—I actually loved the mild kick it gave!
Mix it all together, and set in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.
And, um, yeah. That’s all there is to it! Don’t you love how simple this is?!
Oh, and be sure to serve your ceviche with some fresh chips! Check out my recipe for homemade tortilla chips fried in coconut oil. Or, if you’re not a chips kinda-person, you can munch this ceviche down with some romaine lettuce leaves, instead.
