Seafood Cocktail

Shrimp cocktails have been one of my favorite appetizers ever since I was a little girl. There’s just something about fresh shrimp in the tangy cocktail sauce that makes my mouth water. So when creating this appetizer, I decided to bump it up a few notches. I started with a little lettuce and then slices of avocado, and then followed it with fresh crab and shrimp to top it off. I made my own cocktail sauce too and it turned out tasty with a little kick to it. The lemons and olives were just for garnish but the jars ended up turning out so cute, they would be perfect appetizers for a party or gathering. Let the cocktail party begin!

Cocktail Sauce Recipe:


  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire



  1. Fill the jars with cleaned lettuce
  2. Add baby shrimp with a little bit of sauce followed by sliced avocado
  3. Cover with crab pieces sprinkled with lemon juice
  4. Hang shrimp over the side and garnish with olives, lemons and extra sauce if desired
  5. Refrigerate or serve immediately IMG_1013.jpg

The finished product!
