      This was wonderful. I used vegan shrimp, and it was perfect. The part that I made with real shrimp tasted just like what I had on SPI myself, which was what I was looking for. I didn't have any horseradish, but I did have some shrimp cocktail sauce, so I just used 1/4 cup of that instead. Exactly what I wanted it to be, thanks for posting!

      Oh my this is EXCELLENT! If you like spicy this is a must try. The spicy shrimp paired with the creamy avocado is divine. I used frozen shrimp (thawed) and marinated 4 hours. This will definitely be made again & is going into my "best of" cookbook. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring '09 Pick A Chef.
