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.
