Shrimp Cocktail Veracruz-Style is awesome! The word salpicon comes from the Spanish sal, salt, & picar to chop, refers in classical French cooking - to a mince of poultry, game or vegetables bound with a sauce. In Mexico, however, it can mean anything from a shredded beef salad in the north to this citrusy shrimp appetizer served with Salsa Verde - at Restaurante Dona Lala in Tiacotalpan. It is fantastic! Am posting the recipe for the Salsa Verde just in case this is slightly different from others. The tart green tomatillo gives the salsa its hue & name, is the most popular salsa ingredien in Mexico.
