Mexican shrimp cocktail, also known as coctel de camarones, is a cool and refreshing appetizer made of cooked shrimps combined with spicy Mexican flavors like red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and avocados. In this delicious recipe, cooked and peeled shrimps are seasoned with garlic, red onion, tomato, cilantro, clam juice cocktail, lime juice, hot pepper sauce, horseradish, and avocados and served chilled.

You can serve the shrimp cocktail in small individual bowls or cocktail or parfait glasses with tortilla chips on the side. You can eat the shrimps with a spoon or pick out the shrimp and avocado pieces with a small fork or toothpick. You can also use the tortilla chips to scoop out the contents of the cocktail.

Mexican-style shrimp cocktail makes a delicious appetizer during the summer and can also take the place of salad.

Alternatively, you can serve the cocktail on a bed of crisp cool greens or use lettuce as a garnish. Other ingredients you can add to make Mexican shrimp cocktail are parsley, celery, cucumber, jalapenos, and red chilies.

The shrimps need to be cooked and peeled before dressing and combining with the other ingredients. Boiling is the most common way to cook the shrimps but steaming is also a great way to preserve the succulent texture and sweet flavor. To steam the shrimp, place them in a pot and add just enough water to cover all the shrimps. Bring the water to a rolling boil with the lid of the pot slightly askew on top. Once the steam comes out from under the lid, turn the heat off and close the lid. Drain the pot carefully by pouring the water into the sink and opening the lid slightly. Use potholders to protect your hands. Close the lid and let the shrimp cook in its own steam for about twelve minutes. Cool the shrimps and peel and devein them.
