Shrimp Cocktail

My friend Edwardo gave me this recipe, a wonderful man from Ecuador. The juice from this is very good, I have known some to go back for more of the juice and some even add vodka to it and drink it.

  • 1Clean, devein, remove tails, and quickly steam shrimp, be careful not to over cook. Set aside to cool in large serving bowl.
  • 2Slice your onions and peppers. You can add more pepper and onion slices if you like . I add mostly by how its proportioned to everything else.
  • 3Chop some cilantro. About a handful, the amount is mostly to your taste.
