Shrimp cocktail

Raquel Medrano


my husband brought me a cocktail from a local mexican restaurant...i basically looked at ingredients and bought everything to make at home. Of course this is made to my liking. You can play with it until u get your personal touch like more lemons? or less? omit cucumber or add more? u get the idea, but i hope u enjoy this recipe! ;)

pinch tips: How to Peel & Devein Shrimp




2 lb
shrimp, peeled ,deveined & cooked
3 medium
1 large
1 large
2 bunch
cilantro, fresh
1 bottle
tomatoe /cocktail sauce (eg. clamato brand)
7 large
3 large
chile serranos or jalapeƱos (diced)
5 dash(es)
garlic salt
1/2 lb
imitation crabmeat (optional)
2 Tbsp
ketchup (optional)
tapatio chile sauce (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

In large bowl place shrimp and (optional) imitation crab. Cut lemons and squeeze juice into bowl. Place in fridge while you cut rest of ingredients.
Start cutting/dicing onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, chili serranos and cilantro to size of your liking. I like them tiny in med bowl until you have all your veggies cut.
Add all your veggies to the shrimp bowl. Add the Clamato cocktail sauce. Add dashes of garlic salt. Taste to your liking. At this time you can add ketchup to bowl...or each individual can add ketchup to their serving. Also Tapatio sauce can be added for an extra spicy kick! Eat alone, with tortilla chips, or my favorite saltine crackers!!!
