Mexican Shrimp Cocktail also known as Cóctel de Camarónes is a delectable cornucopia of shrimp, onions, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado, and jalapenos in a slightly spicy tomato dressing. The end result is nothing short of a flavor blast for your senses. A mouthwatering experience from the sweet smell of the cilantro and Mexican hot sauce to the taste of the creamy avocado and crisp cucumber.
