Make a tasty and fresh Mexican shrimp cocktail, it is excellent as a snack or as an entree for your seafood dishes.
I love shrimp and my family too, they are easy to cook and very versatile, they can be eaten in hot or cold dishes; with rice, with pasta, etc.
I remember that as a girl I liked them, in the case of my children, this is one of the dishes with shrimp that they ask for the most, it will be for the bittersweet taste, although my daughter likes spicy well.
The shrimp cocktail is one of the easiest dishes that you can take to your meetings or parties; for this recipe, you can buy the cocktail shrimp already cooked, I got it frozen and it tastes good; but if you get it fresh is much better, you just have to cook it before and let it cool.
