"I prepare this refreshing shrimp cocktail for my family a lot during the hot summer days. Being a Mexican family, we always add Mexican hot sauce (such as Valentina® or Tapatio®) 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. Top with additional hot sauce and avocado slices if desired. Enjoy!"

This was my first time ever making Mexican Shrimp Cocktail, my Mexican boyfriend requested it. I doubled the Clamato, added 1/2 cup of onion instead of 1/3 cup, and added 1 clove minced garlic. ...

Great authentic recipe! I add a little shrimp water (water used to boil shrimp) to the mix as well. Try it with picante Clamato next time for added flavor. Thanks for such a refreshing recipe...

Loved it! My husband couldn't stop eating. However, I did not add the celery and cucumber.

I made this a couple weeks ago after having some at a restaurant, this recipe was so much better than that the restaurant had. Delicious!!!

Excellent! I've been wanting to duplicate this recipe for years. There's a market in East San Jose named Tropicana and they make the BEST Coctels de Camarones... now I can make them at home. ...
