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.

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!
