I didn't have any baby shrimp on hand, but I did have a few bags of Mexican langostino tails lounging in the freezer, and this was perfect for them! I have to admit, I was a little concerned about making coctel with an entire bottle of ketchup, but my worries were unfounded. I added more than 1lb of seafood to this because I was trying to use up 3 12oz packs of langostinos, but I'm glad I did (this recipe makes a heck of a lot of sauce, and we like coctel that is heavy on the seafood). Per suggestions in the recipe intro, I added two diced jalapenos and one diced avocado to the mix. I also subbed a bottle of Clamato juice for 4 cups of the water. For the hot sauce, I did half Valentina Picante, half Sriracha sauce (I know, Sriracha sauce isn't exactly Mexican, but it's SO GOOD in Mexican coctel! I served this with lime wedges and saltines. I'll definitely be making this again (especially if DH has anything to say about it). Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 09
