Mexican Restaurant Style Shrimp Cocktail with Vegan Option

 

This is a pretty easy one for you guys. I really like to eat this to help top up on my veggies. This shrimp cocktail is almost exactly like they sell in mexican restaurants here in Texas and it a great way to eat a bunch of raw veggies. This will serve two people, but I’m a Texas so I usually eat it all myself, so plan accordingly if you are feeding a Texas sized crowd.

Shrimp Cocktail

Serves 1-2

3 roma tomatoes, diced

1/2 white onion, diced

1 jalapeno, finely diced

a small handful of cilantro

juice of 1/2 a lime

tabasco sauce to taste I use probably 1/2 tsp

ketchup a bunch of it

6oz cooked frozen shrimp, thawed (leave out for vegan:) )

1-3 avocadoes

Dice up all of the veggies in a large bowl, minus the avocado. Squeeze the lime juice and shake in your tabasco. I usually give the tabasco a few good shakes because I like it spicy. Then add the shrimp. Next ketchup, use any brand you like, but I always use Heinz from Costco. You want the mixture to have enough ketchup that the cocktail looks nice and saucy but not too much. Top with sliced avocadoes and serve with tortilla chips
