Easy and Light Crab & Shrimp Cocktail

image

There is really no right or wrong way to make these Mexican styled cocktails. I am a huge fan of them especially when I am wanting to eat something cool and light in the summer time. I love tomato juice (weird I know)..but Clamato juice is better for this recipe in my opinion. The longer it sits in the fridge, the better so everything can absorb together.  You can add more or less of any ingredients and it will still be delicious! So if you like it spicy, add hot sauce! Oh, and this is also another healthy dish that you don’t have to feel guilty for 🙂

Yield: 4

Ingredients:
1 pound of cooked shrimp; cut in half
1/2 pound imitation crab meat; coarsely chopped
1 cucumber; seeds removed and cubed
1 1/2 cups Clamato Juice
1/4 cup cilantro; chopped
1 green onion; chopped
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp hot salsa
1 avocado; cubed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 whole lime
1/2 lemon

Steps:
1. Throw everything in a large bowl…squeeze in the lime and half of the lemon and mix! EASY. Let sit in refrigerator for a few hours or until chilled. I love dunking tortilla chips in this as well when I’m feeling extra hungry.
