Shrimp & Hearts of Palm Ceviche

Shrimp and Hearts of Palm Ceviche recipe from

I sat down last Sunday to plan the coming week's recipes and I realized I have never made a shrimp dish for weelicious. That's not the most earth-shattering of realizations, but I kind of surprised myself since shrimp is one of my favorite high protein foods. A lot of people dismiss shrimp as an everyday ingredient because they assume that it is too expensive, but I have fallen in love with the pre-packaged frozen shrimp at our local Trader Joe's. I can buy a bag containing 50-70 shrimp for $5.99 and most supermarkets sell comparably priced brands (just make sure the ones you buy are peeled and de-veined). They also sell wild shrimp which are my preference!

Recently, I was asked to contribute a shrimp recipe to a new food website, so I dusted off one of my old favorites: Shrimp and Hearts of Palm Ceviche. I've been making it for years and friends and family always request it. It's not only fairly inexpensive to make for a crowd, it's healthy and only takes minutes to prepare. I whipped it up for our family dinner last week but didn't expect Gemma to be too interested in it. Boy was I wrong. She ate not one, not two, but three helpings of this gorgeous dish. Kids will surprise you when you least expect it!

    Are those rolled chips something you can buy, or how do you make them?
