My family really enjoyed this recipe. I also added 1/2 an avocado to the mix. The only thing lacking was a little extra kick so next time I'll use 2 Serranos instead of just 1.
It was a little bland, add another pepper or add spice to it, otherwise, it was great!
this is a great tasting cocktail....brought it to a family party went to go have some seconds and it was completely gone made 32 servings for 12 people
This is a very good summer appetizer, refreshing and cool. It's a nice switch from the ketchup-y, horseradish-y shrimp cocktails. Thanks Rey!
Very good recipe!.. I liked the flavor of the sauce. I used celery instead of cucumber because it's what I had. It still gave it the right crunch needed. I also added 2 sliced avacados. For the heat I used about 4 dashes of hot sauce tasting after each addition, that way it was just right! Served it in Margarita glasses along with tortilla chips and saltines for those who wanted them. Next time I wont use the large shrimp because it was harder to get everything on the cracker... In my opinion the smaller salad shrimp would work better. I don't see how this would serve 8... It served 4 of us all right, but we would have liked more!
This was pretty good but it was missing something so I added cayenne pepper to my liking and 2 garlic cloves minced.Also I think this recipe is more for two, maybe we are just pigs. :) Perfecto!!
Oh wow, this was absolutely FABULOUS! I would give it 10 stars if I could. It tasted just like the shrimp cocktail I order at my favorite Mexican restaurant, thank you!
This is fantastic. I sometimes substitute spicey V8 juice for the tomato juice and it comes out perfect every time, but with an intense heat. Thank you Rey, it is perfect as it is.
