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.

How to Make Shrimp Cocktail

Step-by-Step

  1. Clean, devein, remove tails, and quickly steam shrimp, be careful not to over cook. Set aside to cool in large serving bowl.
  2. Slice 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.
  3. Chop some cilantro. About a handful, the amount is mostly to your taste.
  4. When shrimp is cooled, add peppers , onions, cilantro, worchestshire sauce, juice from 2 lemons, and the whole bottle of OPEN PIT.
