Authentic Mexican Shrimp Cocktail (Coctel de Camarones estilo Mexicano)

Mexican Sweetheart

"I prepare this refreshing shrimp cocktail for my family alot during the hot summer days. Being mexican family, we always add mexican sauce such as Valentina or Tapatío and serve with saltine crackers on the side. The trick is to start with well chilled shrimp, ketchup and tomato juice cocktail so it can be ready after only chilling 1 hour in the fridge. Enjoy!"
