Cocktel de Camaron

During a summer in Veracruz, Mexico I learned how to make this street-fare staple. Sounds rather strange but it tastes wonderful and goes great with Corona(R)!

Chop the shrimp into smaller pieces and transfer to a bowl. Stir in the avocado and cilantro. In a separate bowl, stir together the orange soda and ketchup until the foaming stops. Pour over...


  • 8 ounces cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup orange-flavored carbonated beverage
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 (4 ounce) packet saltine crackers
