I don’t really consider myself a lazy person, although I do have bouts of laziness.
I like to think of myself as one of the most active lazy people I know. I go, go, go (!) and then… stop. Relax. Take time to decompress and do nothing. This routine is daily. And needed!
After a long day working, throwing myself into a workout, maybe a walk, too, when I get home, I love to jump into PJ’s and start the process of making dinner.
One dinner, for which the lazy girl in me promptly came out, was a simple, quick, and flavorful Shrimp Ceviche dish.
Lazy Girl’s Shrimp Ceviche
- 1/2 pound medium-small shrimp, peeled and deveined (fresh or frozen)
- 1 tbsp sea salt
- 1/4 cup lemon juice (juice from 1-2 lemons)
- 3 tbsp white vinegar
- 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet yellow onion
- 2 celery ribs, diced
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 cucumber, diced
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 avocado, sliced into chunks and mushed (if you’re avo is ripe enough)
- sprinkle of red pepper flakes
- sprinkle of white pepper (or black pepper)
Place cooked but frozen shrimp in boiling water for 3 minutes, or until thawed and cooked- if using fresh, unfrozen, place in boiling water for about 3-5 minutes, or until the shrimp are fully cooked and turn pink. Strain and set aside.
In a large bowl, add all of the remaining ingredients, sea salt through red pepper flakes, mixing well and mashing the avocado as you stir.
Once the shrimp cool, roughly chop them into smaller pieces. Add them to your avocado mixture and toss to coat, mixing well.
Taste and adjust the lemon/vinegar, salt, and pepper.
Let sit for the flavors to meld together, about 10 minutes.
Plate, eat, spoon into your mouth.
