This is more of a ceviche gazpacho, because it is marinated and served in clam and tomato juice rather than on a tostada or chips. It is served in a tall beer glass or tall ice cream sundae glass. Have fun improvising this recipe. Serve with chips.

Excellent summer meal or a great appetizer for those summer parties. I made this is a gallon sized glass jar to transport to a party. I tossed all the ingredients into the jar as I was prepping them except the avocado - added the Clamato juice and then at the party poured the whole thing into a large bowl, added the avocado and served in clear plastic disposable glasses. There were absolutely no left overs. Perfect! Read More

This is great. I followed through with everything except for adding crab meat and my grandma told me to add just a tbsp of soy sauce. All in all it's really delish. My dumb forgot to peel my shrimp but everyone at the party didn't mind because the taste sure made up for it! Read More

I could eat this all day everyday. So good, so easy, so healthy! A perfect blend of flavors. I didn’t use as much tomato juice as it called for, however. Maybe 1/2. Read More
