Shrimp Cocktail

Sandy Mika


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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
What a fun twist on shrimp cocktail!  It makes for an impressive presentation... and tastes as good as it looks!


2 - 3 lb
fresh raw shrimp
1/4 ea
green pepper, red, yellow, orange thinly sliced (i like to use multi colors peppers, they look so pretty)
bermuda onion thinly sliced
juice from lemons
2 Tbsp
worchestshire sauce
18 oz
open pit original barbeque sauce
fresh cilantro chopped
lemon thinly sliced for garnish


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.
4When shrimp is cooled, add peppers , onions, cilantro, worchestshire sauce, juice from 2 lemons, and the whole bottle of OPEN PIT.
5Mix well. Cover. Place in refrigerator for a couple hours to chill through, it helps the flavors meld. Mix well,Garnish with lemon slices. Serve.
