You want to get that raw onion taste out right away. This will start the pickling process.
Boil the shrimp in water, once they turn pink, discard the water. Let them cool completely. Mix with the tomato, cucumber, jalapeño, salt, and pepper.
To the onions, add tomato juice, ketchup, and hot sauce. Whisk to combine and add the mixture to the shrimp.
The cilantro and avocado go in last. Fold the avocado in gently.
Serve with hot sauce such as Cholula, Valentina, Tapatio. Also serve with saltine crackers, tostadas, and lime. You’ll love every bite!
