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!
