This is a tasty variation of the traditional shrimp cocktail with a little zip thanks to the avocado, grapefruit and chili sauce.
Serves 6.



    • 4 fresh Florida grapefruit
    • 18 cooked, cleaned shrimp 
    • 1 medium avocado, peeled and cut in 1/2" cubes
    • 1 cut bottled chili sauce 
    • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish 
    • 1/4 cup diced red onion 
    • 1/4 cup diced green pepper
    • 1/4 cup sliced celery 
    • Lettuce leaves to line grapefruit shells


Cut each grapefruit in half and remove sections, placing them in a large non-metal mixing bowl.

Scrape out 6 of the grapefruit halves and set them aside. 

Cut shrimp in half lengthwise; add to grapefruit in bowl. 
Add avocado cubes to bowl.

In another bowl, combine chili sauce, horseradish, onion, green pepper and celery.

Mix well and add to bowl; toss gently.

Line the 6 grapefruit shells with lettuce and mound the grapefruit mixture in them.
