This Mexican shrimp cocktail is so colorful and appetizing. The pink of the shrimp, the red of the tomato and the green of the cucumber and avocado make this dish look so tempting. You can see from the picture how arranging one big, juicy shrimp on top looks really good, especially if you leave the tail on. In fact you can leave all the tails on but it is best to peel the shrimp so people can eat them more easily and not have to stop every time they want to eat a shrimp and have to peel them.
