  2. 1 tablespoon ketchup
  3. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  4. 1 tablespoon snipped chives
  5. 2 teaspoons horseradish, preferably finely grated fresh
  6. 1/4 teaspoon brandy
  7. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 1 pound shelled and deveined cooked large shrimp
  9. 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
  10. 1 Hass avocado, thinly sliced
  11. 2 tablespoons canned fried onions
  12. Toasted baguette slices, for serving
  1. In a large bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the ketchup, lemon juice, snipped chives, horseradish and brandy and season with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and toss to coat.
  2. Make a bed of the shredded lettuce on plates or in martini glasses. Top with the shrimp cocktail and arrange the avocado alongside. Garnish with the fried onions and serve with baguette toasts.
