Amazing. Recipe is wonderful. I soaked the shrimp in lemon juice for 5 minutes before steaming. I also soaked the avocado in the juice of two limes and one lemon while I prepped all the other ingredients. I then simply added the avocado with the lemon and lime juice to the other ingredients.
this is my 'go-to-recipe' when entertaining. It's exactly like the Mexican Shrimp Cocktail offered at our local restaurant.....
This recipe is exactly what I was looking for!!! A restaurant (Jalapeno's) by my old house had something like this, but now that we're an hour away, my husband and I don't go there as much as we'd like. I do have to say... this recipe was better!!! Not only did it taste better, but at Jalapeno's, they serve it in a wine glass for about 12 dollars... This recipe only cost me about 18 dollars and I could EASILY fill up 50 of those glasses. Thanks for sharing!!! I will be recommending this to friends!!! By the way, since I made so much (for just me and my husband), we had it as an appetizer AND as a topper for our tilapia (which was wonderful), and we'll be enjoying it for a few days!
