Shrimp Cocktail

So after bridesmaid dress shopping was over yesterday the question was "where should we go eat?" American, Italian, Chinese, Mexican... Mexican it is and San Felipes here we come. Of course it was happy hour so instead of ordering dinner we all ordered appetizers to split! The best choice on the appetizer list shrimp cocktail, like the shrimp cocktail you get straight from Rocky Point down in Mexico. Lots of shirmp,tomatoes, onions, jalalpenos, and tomato juice. All it need more was a little bit of vodka to get a good buzz! I think I could eat shrimp cocktail every day, it was sooo good with that little bite of heat just amazing. It reminds me of the shrimp cocktail my mother makes, which I think she got the recipe from my Great Aunt Suzy:

20-30 mid size cooked shrimp
1 seedless cucumber
2 avacados
1 jalapeno
2 tomatoes
1 onion
handful of cilantro
Bottle of Clemato Juice
1 lime
1 lemon


Dice up all vegatables and put in a large bowl. Add in cooked shrimp and squeeze the lime and lemon over everything. Pour in the clemato juice and refrigorate untill ready to serve!

Easy as that to get such great taste. I do have to say going to San Felpes at happy hour is easier then making the dish, escpecially when it is half off. All in all it was great food, great drinks, and we even got great dresses for the wedding.

Untill next time!
