Ingredients

How to make it

  • First, cook or thaw shrimp, then rinse and refrigerate until nice and cool. If using cooked, frozen, defrost overnight in fridg.
  • Dice all of your veggies except avacado. Add it at the last minute to avoid it turning too brown and getting mushy. Mix all veggies together in a large bowl.
  • Mix ketchup and lime juice together and add to veggies.
  • Add chopped cilantro (I use lots)
  • Add shrimp and tomato juice cocktail
  • Add salt and pepper and Tapatio Sauce (available in most markets) to taste.
  • Serve in a big, stemmed water glass or beer mug (or something similar)
  • Just before serving, dice the avacado and add to the mixture. Ladle into glasses, sprinkle cilantro on top and add lime wedge.
  • Cut the rest of the limes into wedges. Put on a nice plate with crackers and enjoy!
  • Leave the bottle of Tapatio out for those who like a little spice in their lives.

    So glad summer is here so we can eat this again! I ordered a case of Cameronazo (shrimp and tomato juice from Walmart) and I am ready for the summer! This is THE best recipe. I judge all shrimp cocktails by this even when we eat out! I follow this recipe exactly except the juice.
