What a wonderful appetizer or lunch ! The marinade makes the shrimp nice and spicy. And the sauce is a great deviation from the typical ketchup and horseradish mixture…this one uses tomatoes and has a much fresher taste. Try dipping your avocado slices in the sauce too – the flavors go together perfectly.

Lean ham is a great ‘diet’ meal – it is relatively low in calories and definitely does not feel like you are eating diet food ! And the precooked, boneless ones available at the food store are a snap to make.

When you are using shrimp in a shrimp cocktail, splurge and get them at a fish market or a food market that has a good fish department – they are just fresher and better suited to cocktail. I like my cocktail sauce very zesty – if you cannot find a spicy enough one at the food store or fish market, just stir in some extra prepared horseradish.
