Sosu Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Cocktail

Although a delicious appetizer and great for happy hour, Shrimp Cocktail can be a bit monotonous, and that’s why we’ve decided to take it to the next level and jazz it up a bit.  The citrus found in the early girl tomatoes that we use in our Srirachup provide a delightfully sweet and tangy element to brighten up any shrimp cocktail, but also deliver a kick of heat.  So add a little twist to your next happy hour with our Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Cocktail.

Since the cocktail sauce is the star of this recipe, we’ll begin by making the sauce.  In a mixing bowl combine the Srirachup, Worcestershire sauce, and lime juice.  Mix well.

Next, chop the shrimp, cilantro, and shallots.  Chop the avocado and the tomato into cubes.

Mix the shrimp, cilantro, avocado, tomato and shallots into the Srirachup cocktail sauce and season with salt and pepper.  Serve with a side of tortilla chips.
