Mexican Shrimp Cocktail

If you think of shrimp cocktail and picture some sadly, limp shrimp submerged in seafood sauce, then you need to be brought over the Mexican border for a wake-up call.

This cocktail's sauce is more like the main part of the appetizer; the shrimp just coming along for the ride. It is fantástico! And very fácil (easy) to make.
