Been looking for Mexican Shrimp Cocktail. This sound like one, but I don't like V8 juice to much celery taste and sodium. What could use instead of V8 juice. Maybe Tomato juice or Boody Mary mix maybe better. I'll let you know Great recipe

Agree with juicing your own

Agree with juicing your own tomatoes. Anything other than fresh is going to have too much sodium, unless you can find a low sodium product.

One of my favorite Mexican dishes

Great recipe. I like my coctel a bit thick so I added some plain tomato sauce to thicken it up. Also, leave the flavor as is (no spice/heat however you call it). That way you can have some hot sauces for people to add to their portion as they please.

Quick, easy, fresh, easy to adjust

Light, refreshing and beautiful!

This was a big hit at a Mexican fiesta I had. It's quick and easy to make, and looks very pretty. I would definitely recommend the spicy V8 juice, since I used the regular and the sauce could have used an extra kick. Since I really like Mexican spices, next time I'll try adding some cayenne, Mexican chili powder and other spices. Great for a summer BBQ or potluck!

Easy to make, quick, refreshing, nice presentation.
