I make this awesome recipe a lot for my family – mostly during the summers. Me and my family like to spice it up with a lot of hot sauce or tobasco sauce and serve with some salt crackers. Il let you in on a secret – I like to start with chilling the shrimp, ketchup, and tomato juice (and it takes only about 1 hour to chill).

OPTIONAL:- Top with additional avacado and/or hot sauce if desired !!
