Cocktail Sauce

2 tablespoons Demitri’s Chipotle Habanero Bloody Mary Seasoning
1 cup tomato chili sauce
------------------------------------------

3/4 pound cooked small shrimp (about 2 cups)
1/2 ripe avocado, diced
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped cilantro
8 cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup very thinly sliced romaine lettuce

Garnish: small romaine leaves, cilantro sprigs and 4 lime wedges

To make the sauce: In a small bowl mix together the Demitri’s seasoning and chili sauce. Refrigerate.

In a small bowl gently combine the shrimp, avocado, cilantro, tomatoes, and salt. Divide the lettuce between 4 martini glasses or small bowls. Divide the shrimp evenly on top of the lettuce

Dollop each shrimp cocktail with 1 to 2 tablespoons of sauce. Garnish with a small romaine leaf tucked into one side of the glass, a sprig of cilantro and a lime wedge. Pass extra cocktail sauce on the side.

Chef’s Tips: You can use Demitri’s Extra Horseradish Bloody Mary Seasoning for a milder sauce.
