In our family, I get to decide when the seasons change. For weeks my husband has been begging me to make a dish called Campechana. It is a slightly spicy crab cocktail with horseradish, peppers, tomatoes, crab meat and prawns. I told him that it is a summer dish and that it is not the right time to make it yet since it is winter and soups are obviously a way better winter dish! Then, last Sunday I got so sick of the cold weather that I decided to start the "summer season" immediately.
This crab cocktail can be prepared a day before you want to serve it, so it is perfect for when you have a dinner party or guests over.
Needless to say my husband was very happy that Sunday.
serves 8 - 10 as a main course, double a an appetizer
