Mexican Shrimp Cocktail recipe is excellent!I was apprehensive to ad ketchup…but do it!
Absolutely delicious!! Thank you!
Easy to follow recipe and the whole family loved it. I’ve only had this dish once before, but the family I’m staying with are Mexican so I thought this would be a fresh, healthy dinner we could all enjoy. Everyone loved it!
Amazing! Husband says no celery next time and it would be extra perfect!
Took me back to Shrimp Cocktail in Mexico!
Had every ingredient except jalapenos and still came out great! My husband said this is a keeper!
Absolutely perfect! I will be making this again for sure. I doubled the recipe and it was gone so fast, it was better than the restaurant that we normally eat at. My daughter said “Best shes ever Had” I recomend all fresh ingredients.
Pretty good, but one lime is not enough for the whole thing. Best to have extra lime on hand and season to taste in your glass. And no decent Mexican would think of using Tabasco. Use Tapatio (or better yet Salsa Yaqui if you can find it, comes in a large bottle like Sriracha does). And for extra flavor, clamato works great!
Real Mexican shrimp cocktail has Clamato…
This was the best looking recipe to remind me of my Rocky Point fave!! Was so apprehensive of the ketchup and hid it from my diners. So after I chopped and minced everything, I put in the ketchup and chilled the bowl in the fridge right away. Asked them if they noticed any ketchup about an hour after we all ate seconds, and they all said no! Also they said not to skip it either that it was so perfect.
This recipe is deserves 10 stars!!I used a 28 oz can of toms and minced one serrano vs using 15 oz can and a jala.It came out better than my fave spot in puerto penasco!!!
I’m going to try this. Yummy.
This recipe is the best. I’ve been making it for years now.
I’ve made this recipe several times and my husband and I absolutely love it. I double the recipe so that we can eat a couple of meals off of it.
My husband & I love this shrimp cocktail recipe!!! I double or triple it for parties and everyone loves it!
2nd time I’ve made this and it’s amazing
Does anyone know approximately how many calories a serving has?
Hi, Yanet! Emma here, managing editor for Simply Recipes. I’d recommend plugging the ingredients into a nutrition calculator like this one to determine the calories. Hope this helps!
I’ll be adding this dish on Saturday, 10/21 for my Mexican birthday bash. I’ll use wild WA frozen shrimp and incorporate water from thawing; Tapatio, peeled organic Roma tomatoes (I boil for one minute then ice water-cuts the acid too) celery with leaves! english cucumber, roasted jalepenos, cilantro with young stems, red onion (I soak in water then dry), avo, splash of clamata & pink hyacinth salt. Wish me luck! Having 50 people.
Don’t use fresh farm shrimp!
