Shrimp Cocktail on Steroids

I would love to take the credit for this amazing recipe, but this is my husband, Steve’s little recipe he came up with. (like I’ve said before, he thinks he’s Gordon Ramsey LOL).

Shrimp Cocktail on Steroids can be served in a couple of ways: 1). as an amazing starter to a traditional Steak and Mash Potatoes main 2). Like I have prepared today, a lunchtime main course for 1 to 2 people. They both work extremely well, but I think I prefer this as a light main course, giving me more room for dessert LOL!
