Let’s get down to brass tacks: here’s a zesty snack that plays right into the holiday season! Campechana is Mexican Seafood Cocktail that your guests are guaranteed to gobble up in no time!
Sysco Houston Executive Chef Ojan Bagher shared his personal take on this easy appetizer in our short video above, complete with Portico shrimp and lump crab meat.
Campechana has the potential to be a very popular seller with a good price point, depending on what you include in the mix (shrimp, crab, oysters, etc.). Form your saucy base by combining equal parts ketchup and Bloody Mary mix, plus pico de gallo, horseradish to taste, chopped jalapeños and cilantro. Add the juice from two limes, and avocado LAST (along with your seafood).
Stir it all together and plate with corn tortillas and/or tortilla chips. Voilà! A fresh party favorite with bite–and spice! For more delicious recipes and fun food and wine pairing ideas, subscribe to my newsletter.
