Peruvian Shrimp Cocktail Recipe


















To Marilyn: I always look for your recipes in the newsletter. I love seafood! I haven't tried adding coconut to the recipe I sent, but I don't see why you couldn't add it.

Guess you just have to experiment. Sure wish I had that orange cocktail sauce. Never heard of it. I really miss the seafood from when I lived in Florida.
Here's another shrimp recipe.

Peruvian Shrimp Cocktail Recipe

Ingredients
1 1/2 lb. small cooked shrimp
1 ripe red tomato, seeded & cut into 1/2 in. dice
1/2 red onion, cut into 1/2 in. dice
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 jalapeño chilies, seeded & minced
3 T. chopped fresh cilantro
3 T chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. freshly ground black pepper
6 romaine lettuce leaves (taken from the heart) for garnish

Directions

(Note! Recipe was inspired by Peruvian ceviche where raw seafood is marinated in lime juice until the liquid "cooks" it through. In this recipe, citrus juices, chiles, and onion have an electrifying effect on already cooked shrimp)
