Shrimp Cocktail Anyone?

Over the weekend I made this delicious shrimp cocktail.
I will be making it again soon.  It was a big hit in our household.

Authentic Shrimp Cocktail

(The story behind it all)
I grew up in a small town and there was this place called El Sinaloense.  They had the best shrimp cocktail I have ever eaten!  I moved away and have always been on the lookout for something that compares.  I have not been able to find a place that makes it the same way as it was in my hometown.  So, I decided to make my own.  Here you go!


  • 2 lbs of jumbo shrimp
  •  1 red bell pepper
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 4 large avocados
  • 1 large purple onion
  • a large handful of cilantro
  • 3 fresh jalapenos
  • 2 serrano peppers
  • 6 limes
  • 2 small cartons of tomatoes
  • 3 teaspoons of horseradish
  • 4 dashes of worchestershire sauce
  • 5 dashes of tabasco sauce
  • 5 dashes of hot sauce
  • 1 cup of ketchup
  • 1.5 cups of orange juice
  • 4 cups of clamato juice
  • 2 cups of V8 regular vegetable juice
  • garlic, salt, and pepper to taste
That’s it. ENJOY!
