Description

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail, also known as Cóctel de Camarónes, is a delectable cornucopia of shrimp, onions, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado, and jalapenos in a slightly spicy tomato dressing. The end result is nothing short of a flavor blast for your senses. A mouthwatering experience from the sweet smell of the cilantro and Mexican hot sauce to the taste of the creamy avocado and crisp cucumber.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Large Cooked Shrimp Peeled, Deveined And Tails Removed
  • ¼ cups Sweet Onion, Finely Chopped
  • ½ cups Celery, Chopped
  • ½ cups English Cucumber, Diced
  • 1  Large Meaty Tomato Diced (like A Beefsteak)
  • 2  Ripe Avocados, Peeled, Pitted And Diced
  • 1  Jalapeno Seeded, Membranes Removed And Minced
  • 2  Limes (more If You Want Lime For Garnish)
  • FOR THE SAUCE:
  • ½ cups Ketchup
  • ½ cups Salsa Style Tomatoes (see Notes)
  • 2 Tablespoons Mexican Hot Sauce (such As Cholula)
  • ¼ cups Chopped Fresh Cilantro Leaves

Preparation

In a large bowl, combine shrimp, onion, celery, cucumber, tomato, avocado and jalapeno. Squeeze lime juice over the top and stir gently to coat.

In a small bowl, whisk ketchup, salsa style tomatoes and Mexican hot sauce. Gently stir the sauce and cut cilantro into the shrimp. Chill for about 1 hour.

Note: There are several brands of salsa style tomatoes available at most grocery stores in the canned tomato section. Walmart has a really tasty one called Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa.
