Coctel de camarones ‘Acapulco’ – Shrimp cocktail Acapulco-style

Coctel de camarones ‘Acapulco’  was the fave dish from my class on the cooking of Oaxaca/Guerrero regions of Mexico. I could just imagine eating this while lounging under a palapa on Caleta beach in Acapulco and knocking back with una cerveza bien fría

  • The salsa for the shrimp cocktail was made from 1/3 cup ketchup, 1/2 cup lime juice, 2 tbsp salsa ‘Valentina’  and a pinch of Mexican oregano (you can substitute regular oregano)
