Shrimp Cocktal
Growing up in the beach town of Corpus Christi, I spent many long hours shrimping, crabbing, and fishing with my dad. I remember my mom frequently asking him, "How on earth am I going to cook all of this?" One way she coped was regular "you-peel-'em" nights, when she would put a couple of enormous bowls of hot, steamed shrimp on the table with many small dishes of Tabasco-infused cocktail sauce. My dad, sisters, and I would happily stay at that table until every bowl was empty.  In Mexico, they have their own way of coping with abundant shrimp. No matter where you go, you will find a variation of this traditional appetizer, which is one of my dad's favorites dishes. He loves Tabasco so much that he usually doubles the amount here! Sweet shrimp and velvety avocado temper the heat of the tangy cocktail sauce. Even you don't like it as spicy as my dad does, it should definitely have a little kick. Mexican shrimp cocktail is typically served out of individual small dishes — I like cocktail glasses — and eaten with a spoon.  Click here to see Shrimp Recipes for Any Day of the Week

Not your run of the mill ketchup shrimp cocktail, but it is fabulous. This is reminiscent more of the authentic cocktails you would receive in Mexico at a snack bar. This is best if marinated for a couple of hours before serving. Some add tomatos as well, but I don’t. Serve it with chips. Cooking time includes the marinade time

I found this recipe in a book called "Great American Favorite Brand Name Cookbook" and I have not tried it yet, but I'm trying to get some stuff up here before I have to return the book. So if anyone tries it and has any comments, let me know. Hope you enjoy! (Cooking time does not include 2 hour chill time)

MEXICAN SHRIMP COCKTAIL This recipe came from an estate sale. I obtained it when I purchased the family collection from the Sims Estate in Arlington, Texas in 1991.
