Just as the name indicates, this is a truly delicious shrimp cocktail. I slightly varied the recipe by adding in some diced avocado right to the sauce instead of serving on the side. Also, I only let it chill for about an hour, since I was so determined to try it. I was not disappointed in the slightest, and my fiance immediately gave it the thumb's up! This recipe is a definite keeper. Thanks for posting!

Just like the restaurants, only better! You can use frozen shrimp- just run a little water over them and then use. Then use 6 c. warm H20 instead of shrimp H20. I also add more vegies- celery, cucumber, yellow bell pepper- if your family doesn't like raw onion, use half-scallions; they flavor but are easy to avoid! Add a can a of well rinsed black beans for a meal! I always wanted to know how they did the sauce- thank you!

This is almost a clone of a dish my local mexican restaurant has. I absolutely love, love, LOVE it! I made this for our monthly "girl's night". we had this and "White Peach Sangria" and they went together wonderfully. I had a ton of leftovers, so I strained out the shrimp and veggies and used them as quesadilla filling with the sauce on top. Also fabulous! Thanks for a summer staple!
