Mango and Calamari Ceviche

If you’re a fan of the fried calamari you get off the appetizer menu of your favorite restaurant, you’ll love this mango and calamari ceviche as a fresh twist that is totally Paleo friendly. Calamari is the name given to squid when it’s served as food. Calamari is quite neutral in flavor, but has a wonderful firm texture that is quite reminiscent of pasta. Squid is also a great source of protein, phosphorus, vitamin B-12, riboflavin, zinc, niacin, and other important vitamins and minerals. This Mango and Calamari Ceviche recipe uses the acidity of lime juice to cook the calamari after its been boiled for a minute. The zesty flavors of curry, garlic, peppers, and mango result in a flavor combination that is out of this world!

Comments

  1. Where is the recipe? It doesn’t appear when one clicks on the link. Just the “serves 4” and the “cook” time.

  2. Sorry, but this recipe doesn’t make any sence to me. You only talk about the calamari and than you say that you just mix in all the left over ingredients. So do you equally just throw in the orange juice, lime juice, lime zest, curry powder, garlic and the rest ?

  3. Hi! Shopping list said I could subtitute calamari with shrimp I loooove calamari but didn’t find at the store, cooking instructions are the same? I only found cooked shrimp

    1. Hi Becky!
      You can definitely substitute cooked shrimp for the calamari in this recipe. You don’t need to further cook the shrimp; simply bypass the first 3 steps of the instructions, and follow the recipe from there using your cooked shrimp! Sounds delicious…enjoy! :)

      In good health,
