Shrimp and Watermelon Ceviche
This gorgeous low-carb appetizer is perfect for your next dinner on the deck! With South American origins, this dish features the exotic flavor combination of shrimp, watermelon, lime, jicama, cilantro, and jalapeño pepper, all for only 44 calories and 7 grams of carb per serving.

Ingredients
1 pound medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons lime juice, divided
1 cup finely chopped seedless watermelon
1/2 cup finely chopped jicama
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeño pepper,* minced
56 water crackers

Directions
Yield: 28 servings
Serving size: 2 topped crackers

1 – Remove tails from shrimp; discard. Chop shrimp into small pieces.

2 – Combine shrimp and 1/2 cup lime juice in medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until shrimp are pink and opaque. Drain; discard juice.

3 – Meanwhile, combine watermelon, jicama, onion, cilantro, jalapeño, and remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice in large bowl. Gently stir in shrimp. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to develop.

4 – Serve on or with water crackers.

Note: While the shrimp aren’t traditionally cooked, the citric acid from the lime juice “cooks” the shrimp while they are marinating.

*Note: Jalapeño peppers can sting and irritate the skin, so wear rubber gloves when handling peppers and do not touch your eyes.
