Shrimp Seviche
Seviche [seh-VEE-chee] is a dish traditionally made of fresh, raw fish marinated in citrus juice (usually lime).  The action of the acid in the juice "cooks" the fish, firming the flesh and turning it opaque.  In this Shrimp Seviche recipe, we toss precooked shrimp with crunchy vegetables in a marinade that gets its zing from fresh lime and orange juice and some heat from chipotle peppers.

High Protein Dips
As the holiday parties gear up, substitute traditional high fat dips for high protein, high fiber dips and salsas made from beans. Both our White Bean Dip with Rosemary and our Black Bean Salsa pair well with crunchy veggies or whole wheat pita for dipping.
