Crab Ceviche Recipe

Crab Ceviche

Last week, I asked one of my fitness clients how she’s been liking her custom nutrition plan and I’m so glad I did.  First, we both had a great laugh over the fact that her hubby, who started out quite suspicious of kale, was found packing it into a measuring cup to get the most out of the serving size noted on his plan.  Then, she told me how the recipes have been the best part of the plan. She’s been loving how they are so easy and tasty.

Since starting What’s for Dinner? Wednesday, I’m always looking for new, easy, healthy recipe ideas so once I heard that I set myself up with a nutrition plan of my own and found this AWESOME new recipe for crab ceviche!  I was so excited to try it that I actually made it on Monday night.

I’m happy to report that Mr. Fit Armadillo is now the newest hubby to be converted to my meal plan recipes. He took one bite and said “Wow! this is your best creation, yet!” Not a bad review, right?

Want to have your hubby raving about your easy, delicious, nutritious, healthy creations come dinner time? Try out this week’s recipe and if you need more inspiration, sign up for your own custom nutrition plan 😉

Here is what you’ll need to make this week’s dish and serve it to four:

24 oz lump crab meat
4 tsp olive oil
3 cups of tomatoes
1.5  cups of onion
1 cup fresh cilantro
2 limes
2-3 serrano peppers
Optional: Pita bread or wrap to serve as a side

Wish you had these ingredients sooner? Make sure you get on my A-List to get them in your inbox each Sunday 😉

Here’s how to put it all together:

Step One: If you’re using real crab (which, you should because you’re so worth it 😉 ), make sure to remove any pieces of shell left with your crab meat.  Nothing ruins a good ceviche like crunching down on an expired exoskeleton!

Step TwoToast up your pita bread or just get it handy.

Step Three: Mix all remaining ingredients together.

And….that’s it! If you like, you can let your mix sit in the refrigerator for an hour or so to allow the ingredients to blend a little more, but we just enjoyed ours right away and it was SO good! Store-bought crab meat is already cooked, so you don’t need to wait for the lime juice to make it safe to chomp on (as you would with other seafood ceviches).
