Shrimp Cocktail - Ceviche Style

I use an avocado slicer when preparing this recipe. It removes the avocado perfectly from the skin while making consistent slices. The slices are then easy to chop into cubes. You can find this avocado slicer on Foodie-isms Amazon store (located on this website) under the tab called “foodie finds.”

While growing-up in Jojutla de Juárez, Morelos, México, Brenda Tirado Rugman recalls enjoying Coctel de Camarones with her family during the summer time, family reunions, cookouts, or any cause for a family celebration. It is an easy, healthy and a great fat free food that everyone enjoys.
