Serves: 4
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 4 shrimp with heads (for garnish)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire
  • 1 teaspoon Brandy (optional)
  • 2 avocados
  • Curly parsley
  1. Wash the shrimp under cold running water. Peel and discard the peels.
  2. With a very sharp knife make a cut along the back of the shrimp to discard the vein. Wash again.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat boil water with salt. Add the shrimp (including whole ones), turn the heat to medium low and simmer for 3 minutes or until they turn pink. Transfer the shrimp to a bowl and cool.
  4. In the meantime, make the sauce by combining mayonnaise with ketchup in a bowl. Stir, add Worcestershire sauce, and Brandy, if using. Reserve.
  5. Peel the avocados, discard the seed and cut the pulp in dices.
  6. Add s1/2 avocado to each martini glasses -you can use any other serving dish or glass-, cover with Golf sauce, and place the cooked shrimp on the rim of the glass.
  7. Garnish with a whole shrimp, a sprig of curly parsley, and serve immediately.
