Shrimp Cocktail Taste Test

Happy Foodie Friday! These recipes come courtesy of Penny and Eleazar Martinez.

Each of our Taste Test Reviews comes with the original recipe and the tester's notes/changes listed with the ingredient list in blue. We hope you enjoy!

Light and refreshing, this shrimp dish is impeccable. There is absolutely nothing I would change about the recipe. I was a little hesitant when I read the ingredient list and saw "clam juice," but the addition of this item provided a tasty briny flavor to the sauce. The tanginess of the onion, cilantro, and lime juice balance nicely with the creaminess of the avocado to create a satisfying cocktail sauce. Every bite of this dish drew me back in for more and I can not recommend it enough!
