Look no further than these Shrimp Ceviche Cups for a perfect springtime or summer appetizer! They’re easy to make and full of fresh flavor!
A few years ago, I got together with a couple of my old coworkers at a local southwestern restaurant to catch up over lunch. That’s where I was first introduced to ceviche. If you’re unfamiliar with ceviche, it’s a seafood appetizer that’s typically made with raw fish. The fish is marinaded in lemon or lime juice. The acidity from the citrus juice cooks the fish and adds a nice flavor.
During a recent visit downtown, I walked passed that same restaurant and was reminded of the tuna ceviche dish that we had shared. I immediately thought about making my own version of ceviche with shrimp. Instead of serving it with rice or chips, I wanted to spoon the shrimp ceviche into Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry cups to make a fun, handheld appetizer.
This simple ceviche recipe would make a delicious springtime or summer appetizer. The morning I made these cups, I precooked the shrimp and chilled them in the fridge until I used them that afternoon. Of course, you could buy precooked shrimp and save yourself a step.
You’ll need a standard muffin tin to make the Puff Pastry cups. Turn the muffin tin over and spray it with non-stick cooking spray. Using the underside of the muffin tin creates a perfect cup shape for the dough. As it bakes in the oven, it gets flaky and golden brown making it a perfect, edible cup for the shrimp ceviche.
