Picaringa’s™ Mexican style Shrimp Cocktail

Yield: 6 servings

You have never had a shrimp cocktail like this. Mexican style. Picaringa™ style.


  • 1 lb 41/50 cocktail pre-cooked shrimp
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • Juice of ½ fresh squeezed orange
  • ½ medium onion, diced
  • 1⁄3 cup cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 1 ½ cups ketchup
  • ½ cup orange soda (si, we’re not kidding!)
  • 2 tablespoons Picaringa™ chilito seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup white wine or 1/3 cup vodka
  • 1 cup cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
  • ½ cup avocado, peeled and diced (dice the avocado just before serving)
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Maggi seasoning sauce
  • Tostadas or tortilla chips to serve

15 minutes before serving squeeze the lime juice into a medium bowl and mix with the diced onion, refrigerate. In a medium bowl, whisk the rest of the ingredients (except for the avocado and half of the cilantro) and stir the shrimp and onion mix as well as all the liquid left in the bowl.

In tall beer or wine glasses, laddle the shrimp mixture and top with avocado and some cilantro as garnish. Serve with a side of tostadas or saltines and have some Picaringa™ chilito seasoning handy for sprinkling!
