Easy Spicy Shrimp Cocktail

This is a great “easy” shrimp cocktail recipe, which can be made up to 24 hours in advance, and kept in the refrigerator.


  • 10 uncooked shrimp, you can use cooked shrimp instead for quickness
  • 1 & 1/2 cups of your favorite Bloody Mary Spicy Tomato Mix
  • 1 Tablespoon of chopped onion
  • 1 Tablespoon of chopped green pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon of cilantro
  • Wedge of lemon
  • 1 or 2 wedges of lime (optional) 
  • 1/2 an avocado sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon of canola oil, you can use olive oil or vegetable oil as an alternative

Now Let’s Cook

Cooking the shrimp

Heat the oil in a pan, I use my MultiPot on the saute setting.

Keeping two of the shrimp aside for decoration, add the remainder to the pan, and cook for a few minutes on each side until done.

Add the chopped green pepper & onion to the shrimp, and cook for around 1 minute until nicely charred, you don’t want them to fully cook.

Alternatively you can use uncooked vegetables for a more crunchy texture.

Let the cooked ingredients cool completely, and add them to your serving dish, I use a margarita glass as shown.

Pour the Bloody Mary mix over the shrimp & vegetables.

If you are making this in advance, cover and keep in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

Just before serving, add sliced avocado, garnish with cilantro, and a wedge of lemon and lime (if using)

Serve with tortilla chips, or alternatively with celery sticks for a low carb option.
