Ecuadorian shrimp ceviche is a healthy classic you'll devour (RECIPE)

Laylita, a blogger friend from Ecuador, says that in her home country, shrimp ceviche is very popular, especially in coastal regions. I love this easy recipe, which differs from other ceviches because you have to cook the shrimp. That makes this dish ideal for those who cannot eat raw seafood. This is a flavorful, low-calorie dish. I hope you like it!
