Margarita Shrimp Cocktail

Helene Mulvihill


My husband and I had this in a restaurant a few years back and we loved it so much we began experimenting with a recipe of our own. This is what we've come up with after many, many tests. You really can't go wrong with shrimp so experimenting was wonderfully fun!

10 Min


2 jar(s)
jars of salsa (16 oz each)
2 Tbsp
hot sauce
2 to 4 Tbsp
prepared horseradish to taste (we actually like 6 to 8)
1/4 c
chopped jalapenos (from a jar)
good sized fist-full of cilantro, chopped
1/4 tsp
black pepper
1/2 c
diced red onion
3 medium
roma tomatoes, diced
1 large
peeled and chopped mango
1/2 lb
frozen popcorn sized shrimp, peeled and deviened
1 or 2 large
avacados, chopped
4 Tbsp
lime juice
tortilla chips


1Mix first 7 ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Toss in tomatoes, onions, mango, and shrimp.

2chop avacado and toss with lime juice. Leave to soak for 3 to 5 minutes. This will slow down the browning process of the avacado. add avacado lime juice to mixture and toss.

3serve with toritlla chips

for a very impressive presentation I like to serve this in a margarita glass placed on top of a desert sized plate with some of the avacado mixed in and some sprinkled on top. A Lime wedge on the edge of the glass and tortilla chips around the plate. Makes a great appitizer for a dinner party or a great dip for a big party!
