Shrimp Cocktail

4 from 1 vote

Dishes made out of shrimp is very favourable for my family. Whenever we are in a seafood restaurant and my husband ordered this dish, I also tempted to have it though I am allergic to shrimp. This weekend I try it in my own. Ingredients are simple and very easy to make. The shrimp cocktail recipe is awesome for any party especially, a surprise appetizer for a romantic dinner.
