When I knew I was going back to California for a vacation, I told everyone that all I wanted to eat was Mexican food. Very few places in New England have that special touch when it comes to Mexican food. On my last day in California, we had a family gathering and I requested a Mexican feast. What I didn’t know is that my father came back with a special treat for me. Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love seafood. Seafood and fish are pretty much what I eat on a daily basis and it never gets old for me. My father came back with a Mexican Shrimp Cocktail. I have to tell you it was the most delicious and refreshing appetizer I have ever had.
Now that I am back in New England, I want to recreate this recipe. It will cost more money to make this with only the freshest ingredients, but I do not care, I want to get the same taste I had when I first experienced it. I found this recipe to be a dupe for what I had. If you have ever tried this or have made it, let me know.
