I can’t get enough of this ceviche! Its tangy lime juice, spicy jalapenos, and fresh cilantro are full of flavor. The shrimp, marinated in a zesty mix of lime juice and hot sauce, adds a subtle heat that complements the coolness of the avocado. The diced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and red onions provide a crunchy texture that balances the creaminess of the avocado. Each bite is a lovely blend of flavors and textures, making it a truly satisfying dish.

Keto Stuffed Avocados Cooking Tips

  • Ensure the shrimp is properly peeled and deveined before cooking to avoid any unwanted grittiness.
  • Marinate the shrimp in lime juice, hot sauce, salt, and pepper for at least 10 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
  • When chopping the vegetables, aim for uniform pieces to ensure an even distribution of flavors throughout the dish.
  • Use ripe avocados for the best results. They should yield slightly to gentle pressure when squeezed.
  • To prevent the avocados from browning, drizzle them with a little lime juice before stuffing them with the ceviche mixture.
  • You can adjust the heat level by adding more or less jalapenos and hot sauce, according to your preference.

Ceviched Stuffed Avocados FAQ

Q: Can I make this dish ahead of time?
A: While it’s best enjoyed fresh, you can prepare the ceviche mixture in advance and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. However, wait to halve and stuff the avocados until just before serving to prevent them from browning.

Q: Can I use other types of seafood instead of shrimp?
A: Absolutely! You can substitute shrimp with diced fish like tilapia or cod for a variation of flavors. Just make sure the fish is fresh and of high quality.

Q: Is this dish spicy?
A: The level of spiciness can be adjusted to suit your taste preferences. If you prefer a milder flavor, you can reduce or omit the jalapenos and hot sauce altogether.
