Tequila Lime Shrimp Cocktail

Tequila Lime Shrimp Cocktail

This one will no doubt make an impression with guests!

A special rendition of a not so traditional shrimp cocktail.

The recipe starts with my garden salsa!

Remember, make it simple, make the salsa ahead and use later!

Serves 4






*See garden salsa for ingredient number one and fill about 1/2 to 3/4 martini glass or margarita glass to serve.

*18 Cooked whole shrimp (de-veined and peeled, tail on)

-Chop 6 of them in medium chunks for cocktail and leave 12 whole)

*1/2 cup any tequila (We prefer agave based)

*3 TBSP chopped cilantro

*1 lime

*Carrot shaving and red cabbage for garnish (If desired)

*1 bag of your favorite tortilla chips (We like black bean artisan blend chips for this recipe)


Very simple; just soak the whole shrimp and cilantro in the tequila while you are preparing the other ingredients.

Add the salsa to the martini glass, then add a pinch of chopped shrimp

Place the whole shrimp on the side of the glass and add garnish with lime wedge!
