Recipe by Chicagoland Chef du

From Chef Jeff Smedstad of Elote Cafe, Sedona AZ and The Elote Cafe cookbook. He reveals the secret ingredient in this recipe. I'm not sure which ingredient that is, maybe the catsup? Eh, who cares, this rocks! It's kinda like a gazpacho packed with shrimp. My two favorite things in a schooner! Serve with saltine crackers or crispy tortillas fro dipping & scooping. Enjoy! NOTE: cook = chill time and does NOT include time to cook shrimp. See my recipe for Sensational Boiled Shrimp

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Once the shrimp is completely chilled, place 3 shrimp each into 4 schooners or large parfait glasses.
  3. In a bowl mix all the remaining ingredients and pour over shrimp.
  4. Serve at once, well chilled with crackers, crispy tortillas and a wedge of lime!
