Shrimp Cocktail

The shrimp cocktail can be served as an appetizer, before the main course. The shrimp used for this is A grade shrimp, (can be substituted for other grades) for good appearance. It is best to be served in a martini glass. The lettuce used is iceberg, the lettuce should be cut into juliennes, (once cut put in chilled water for crispness) and placed in the martini glass. On top of the lettuce place avocado pulp mixed with chopped onion, tomato, lime juice, salt and pepper. To the rim of the glass placed the cooked shrimp that is peeled and deveined, and on top the avocado pour a tablespoon of cocktail sauce (tomato ketchup, grated horseradish, salt, pepper) this could be two variations with or without mayonnaise. On top of the cocktail sauce place julienne jicama and sprinkle with paprika powder.
