Tired of your average ceviche? This octopus ceviche is perfect when looking to try something new, healthy and low-carb. This ceviche recipe is best when accompanied by a crunchy side.

Ceviche is my go-to when I'm watching my weight and looking for a tasty, simple meal. This octopus ceviche comes with a whopping 25 grams of protein to keep you feeling fuller longer, plus it’s packed with vitamin B-12. This recipe is easy to make, can be made in large quantities and stored in the fridge for future meals. Pair it up with casabe (cassava bread) for a low-carb dinner, or place it inside a fried tortilla for tacos on cheat meal!

Directions

  1. In a large deep pot, bring water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add the octopus. Keep the flame on medium and let it boil for 30 minutes. Once cooked, let cool and dice into small 1-2 inch slices.
  2. Place the octopus in a bowl, add the lime juice, onions, chiles, cilantro, olive oil, salt and pepper, and let marinate for a couple of hours.
  3. Serve chilled and enjoy with tostadas, tortilla chips or cassava bread.
