Coctel De Camarones ! ! !

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO MAKE AND ENJOY ON THOSE HOT SUMMER DAYS.  COUPLE IT WITH SOME SALTY CRACKERS OR BREAD AND GLASSES OF YOUR FAVORITE ICY COLD BEER AND YOU WILL FEEL LIKE YOU’RE ON SUM BEACH, SUM WHERE!  THIS IS ONE RECIPE I WILL NEVER FORGET.  I FIRST LEARNED HOW TO MAKE THIS CLASSIC MEXICAN SHRIMP COCKTAIL FROM MY GOOD FRIEND MANUEL REYES.  MANUEL IS SOMEWHAT OF A LEGEND IN THESE PARTS.  THIS REFRESHING DISH IS USUALLY SERVED AS A STARTER BUT COULD EASILY BE A MAIN DISH BEFORE YA KNOW IT.  THE SWEET AND SPICY FLAVORS OF THE TOMATO BROTH, THE FRESHLY SQUEEZED LEMON AND ORANGES, THE PLUMP JUICY SHRIMP, THE PUNGENT AROMA OF CLIPPED CILANTRO, THE COOL AVOCADO, AND THE SLIGHT BURN FROM THE JALAPENOS WILL LEAVE YOU SINGING THAT TOBY KEITH SONG –cameronecoctel1cameronecoctel2cameronecoctel3

  1. Steve-O , do you have any recipes using rhubarb? I do remember this rhubarb torte you used to make. I just harvested my first batch of this stuff and any recipes or hints on what to do with it would be greatly appreciated
