Ceviche with carrots!

My neighbor taught me to make ceviche with carrots. What was really interesting is that she says the women in her family don’t get osteoporosis? She attributes this to all of the carrots they eat and the fact that they are high in calcium. Hmnnn. She said its a long held family tradition. Who am I to argue with her traditions and heartfelt theory. All I know is this is sooooo delicious and easy!
Here is her recipe:
2 carrots hand grated on a cheese grater (It really did make a difference in taste and texture)
2 large lemons juiced
Boiled shrimp (medium to large prawns)
Handful of chopped cilantro
1 medium white or red onion
1 jalapeno diced
1 roma tomato seeded & diced
Put shrimp and lemon in bowl first, mix the hell out of this, add salt and pepper to taste. I love my neighbor! Gaw, she can cook and its always simple and delicious. (and ALWAYS includes carrots lol)
