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!

Wow... this is amazing! It's a cross between a shrimp cocktail and Mexican salsa. We were a little unsure of the mango and avocado pairing but it was fabulous. The shrimp soak up the flavors from the horseradish, onions, and jalapeno. This will be great to bring to a party or to have for a snack on a relaxing evening home. The Test Kitchen

    black pepper

How to Make Margarita Shrimp Cocktail

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix first 7 ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Toss in tomatoes, onions, mango, and shrimp.
  3. Chop avocado and toss with lime juice. Leave to soak for 3 to 5 minutes. This will slow down the browning process of the avocado.
  4. Add avocado lime juice to mixture and toss.
  5. Serve with tortilla chips.
  6. **NOTE**
    For a very impressive presentation, I like to serve this in a margarita glass placed on top of a dessert sized plate with some of the avocado 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 appetizer for a dinner party or a great dip for a big party!
