Shrimp Campechana

This recipe serves as a nice little Mexican-style seafood cocktail appetizer!

We have a great restaurant here in town called Goode Company Seafood that has a wonderful appetizer called Campechana de Mariscos.  It’s a Mexican-style seafood cocktail served in parfait glass and served with chips.  They add crab meat and fire-roasted Anaheim peppers, so feel free to add those items as well, but this recipe is still pretty tasty and we use it mainly as an appetizer.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1 pound Shrimp, deveined, cooked, and cut into 1/4″ pieces
  • 1/2 White Onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup Cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Ketchup
  • 1-2 tbsp Hot Sauce (Tabasco)
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1 Avocado, diced into 1/2″ cubes
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • Tortilla Chips

Instructions:

This is the easy part…just combine all the ingredients and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes before serving.  You can make this a day or two ahead of time and it will taste great though I would advise adding the avocado just before serving.
