A zesty, cold shrimp dish that is perfect for brunch, appetizer or meal! One bite will transport you to that island getaway and you'll be looking for a cool beverage to sip alongside. Great the next day or two if any is left over! If serving as appetizer, gently ladle into decorative glasses with a fork and add marinated green beans or celery sticks like a Bloody Mary cocktail; for a meal, serve in bowl with garlic bread and salad. Also fun is to add a shot of vodka to the glass and drink the liquid when the shrimp and vegetables have been eaten!

This recipe is awesome. I marinate it in a large ziplock or tupperware leaving out the avacado. Then we take it with us camping. I add the avacado just before serving and add some cilantro. Bring to the picnic table with a ladle some vodka a bottle of tabasco some crackers and a deck of pinochle cards. You can also add a ladle of the of the sauce to an icy beer. Yum! I am very popular on camping trips. Thank you for the great recipe. I have never added jicama but will do so from here on out. Read More

We have a favorite shrimp cocktail in Puerto Penasco Mexico -- and now with this recipe we can make it at home! Adding Cilantro is a good idea. Read More
