901 Shrimp Campechana

901 Shrimp Campechana at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.comWith Cinco de Mayo just a few days away , I wanted to feature some healthy Mexican recipes this week. This recipe is courtesy of 901 Silver Tequila, a tequila that is triple distilled using only 100% Blue Weber Agave.

Campechana is a Baja Mexico-style seafood cocktail – like a cross between gazpacho and shrimp cocktail – that’s a favorite of my husband and his buddies when they fish in La Paz each year. You can serve this as an appetizer with tortilla chips.

If you want to have 901 Shrimp Campechana as a healthy lunch dish, serve it on top of brown rice in a bowl.
