Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail

Posted by 2 on

Shrimp cocktails are usually featured in the 'appetizer' portion of a menu or a cookbook. *This* shrimp cocktail could easily hold down a place as an entree.  It's chunky, filling, fancy and completely over-the-top delicious.  Scoop it into little shot-sized glasses if youwant to serve this as a mini dish, or serve it in a bowl with a side of tortilla chips for a meal.  Whatever you choose, you'll be deliciously happy and looking for maybe just one more shrimp...   serves 2 for dinner, 6-8 for appetizers   1/3 cup cocktail sauce 1/3 cup marinara sauce (we have a fresh, locally made marinara sauce in our cold case with the cocktail sauce this week!) the juice of 1/2 of a fresh lime 1 medium tomato, chopped 1 fresh jalapeño, seeded and minced 1/4 of a red onion, minced 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped  1 ripe avocado, cubed 3/4 pound salad shrimp   In a large bowl, stir the cocktail sauce, the lime juice and the marinara sauce together.  Add the remaining ingredients, then fold to combine.  Let sit for about 10-15 minutes (perfect amount of time to make the *other* kind of cocktail...) to let the flavors develop, then fold again.  Serve in a pretty glass with a slice of lime and enjoy!
