Mexican Seafood Cocktail

Seafood in a warm broth with cucumber, cilantro and onion mixed in with lemon to flavor.



  1. Thaw seafood. Bring water to boil (enough to go about 1/4" above the seafood).
  2. Add the seafood. Cook until done (about 7 minutes).
  3. Add no salt tomato sauce to the water. Add cayenne and cumin.
  4. Put seafood in a bowl with as much of the broth as you want and add the cucumber, cilantro, avocado (optional), onion and cucumber.
  5. Eat and enjoy!
  6. Note: you can use only shrimp if you like (that would bring down the calories).

I am going to try this recipe sounds good. However, for the no salt diet I will more shrimp instead of the scallops. That will lower the sodium content from 587mg to 160mg. I rated the recipe 3 because I have not tasted it yet.
