Shrimp Cocktail

Mexican Style Shrimp Cocktail

I love shrimp and shrimp cocktail.  This is very different from shrimp cocktails that you get in the states. 

1 lb medium to large shrimp, peeled and deveined   
cup
ketchup
2 tbl
sugar
1 tsp
granulated garlic
2
limes, juice only
2 to 4 tbl
cilantro, chopped
1
jalapeno, seeded and diced
2
Roma tomatoes, with seeds and pulp removed and diced
1
celery stalk, very finely diced

onion, diced
1 cup
cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced
2
Hass avocados, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks

Boil the shrimp for 2 minutes, drain, let them come to room temp, and cut of the shrimp into small pieces but leave the rest whole.  Put the ketchup, sugar, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, and jalapeno in a medium size mixing bowl and mix until combined and the sugar is dissolved. If you want the shrimp cocktail to be a little spicy add some hot sauce now and stir it in well.  Add the tomatoes, celery, onion, and cucumber and mix well.  Add the shrimp and stir.   Put everything in a covered container and put it in the fridge to cool.  When you are ready to serve add the avocados and spoon everything into decorative glasses.  Serve with tortilla chips.
