Shrimp and mango ceviche {with avocado}

Easy recipe for mouthwatering shrimp and mango ceviche with avocado. This refreshing tropical seafood ceviche is made with shrimp, mango, avocado, red onions, lime juice, orange juice, hot peppers (optional), cilantro, and salt.

This shrimp and mango ceviche with avocado is another variation of my classic Ecuadorian shrimp ceviche. I used sweet mangos instead of tomatoes to give it a tropical taste. I also added some spicy peppers, but these can be replaced with sweet peppers or omitted if you prefer it not spicy.

Another option is to only add the hot peppers to the onion curtido salsa – this way those who prefer it on the spicy side can add it to their own bowl. This ceviche is a little bit different than my mango ceviche, which uses habaneros and is a little bit less acidic since it does not have seafood in it.

Mango shrimp ceviche

For this mango shrimp ceviche recipe I used red onion in two different ways, I added some diced to the actual ceviche to let it marinade and infuse its flavor to the dish. I sliced the rest of it thinly and made a curtido or marinated them in lime juice with salt – and if you want some spicy diced hot peppers. I served this onion curtido as a topping on each individual ceviche bowl.

I also chopped the cooked shrimp into small bite sized pieces. This differs from my standard Ecuadorian style shrimp ceviche where we usually leave the shrimp whole. If you prefer to leave them whole you can do so. Same with the onions – if you prefer only to use them diced – or only sliced – then go ahead. These are just minor preferences that shouldn’t change the outcome or flavor of the shrimp mango ceviche.

Mango shrimp avocado ceviche

As usual when making a ceviche with avocado in it, I recommend adding the diced avocado right before serving. This will prevent it from browning.

In Ecuador we usually serve ceviche with fried green plantains, either in the form of patacones /tostones or chifles (thin green plantain chips). Other popular garnishes include crunchy tostado style corn nuts, popcorn and hot sauce.  Of course it’s also just delicious by itself.

For a spicy kick you can also add some diced hot pepper to the onion curtido salsa.

  • Serve topped with the onion curtido salsa, and with your choice of crunch side garnishes: green plantain chips (aka patacones/tostones) or chifles, popcorn, or tostado style corn.
