Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

Teri Halbrook


I love shrimp cocktail, but when I had this in a Mexican restaurant one day I went over the moon for it, thus started my quest for how to make it. Finally I came up with this recipe. I like making my own salsa but using store bought works just as well, and its somewhat faster.
