This Lenten season place an order for some of the best Mexican-style shrimp cocktails on this side of the border.

It's no meat Fridays for El Pasoans who observe the Catholic faith, and it's the perfect time to discover some of the best shrimp cocktails around the city.

We are two weeks into the Lenten season and if you think you are running out of options, think again.

No meat Fridays, no problem, we’ve been sharing the best fish tacos, drive-thru fish sandwiches, and now we bring you some of the best shrimp cocktails creations this side of the border.

I love making a good shrimp cocktail with cucumber, celery, onion, cilantro, chunks of avocado, and loads of freshly squeezed lime juice but let’s face it; everyone is sick of cooking five thousand times a day. Instead, consider stopping by any of these El Paso eateries serving up mouthwatering Mexican Style shrimp cocktails (Coctel de Camaron) all while supporting local.
