Every year at the neighborhood Christmas Party we would anxiously await the arrival of Linda and her Shrimp Cocktail.The avocados and cilantro make it so unusual and delicious. Most of the time I double this recipe because I eat half of it myself.
1 pound shrimp, fresh or frozen and thawed
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup tomatoes, wedged
1-2 teaspoons hot sauce (Tabasco sauce)
2 avocados, peeled and cubed
lime wedges, wafer thin
Mix 1st seven ingredients well. Chill for 2 -4 hours. Add avocados and lime wedges just before serving.
