4 People


  • 1/4 large fresh pineapple, diced small

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 teaspoons fresh cilantro, chopped you can use parsley if you dislike cilantro
  • 4 tablespoons Gold’s cocktail sauce and more to garnish
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

In a separate bowl, combine “shrimp”, Gold’s cocktail sauce, mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons of cilantro. Mix well and set aside.
In another bowl mash peeled avocados, until creamy.
Add a couple pinches of salt and squeeze some lime juice (at least 1/2 a lime or more) on the avocados to prevent them from turning brown. Mix well

To assemble the terrines (do this right before serving), place a mold on a plate.
Take 1/4 of the pineapple / mango mix and press it on the bottom of the mold.
Add 1/4 of “shrimp” mixture and place it on top of the pineapple / mango layer pressing gently to form an even layer.
Add 1/4 of mashed avocado and with the help of a spoon gently spread it on top of the “shrimp” layer.
 Carefully lift the mold.
Garnish the top with some Gold’s Cocktail Sauce
If you do not own a mold you may use a wide clear drinking glass or and layer all the ingredients and serve the cocktail in the cup.

About May I have that recipe


Close your eyes for a second. Imagine a gigantic blender in front of you. Add a piece of Spain, a chunk of Lebanon, a splash of Israel and a hint of America. Turn it on. Blend until smooth and voila! What do you get? Identity crisis? Not quite… (ok, maybe a little bit). But mostly, you get us. Confused? Keep reading and you’ll understand.

We were born and raised in Barcelona, Spain and now live in a small town on the East Coast of the United States ( I know what you're thinking.... why??? we will go ahead and say it, we blame our husbansd for that one). �Our parents are Lebanese - Syrian Jews . Our mom cooked the best, most flavorful, comforting home cooked meals you could ever imagine. Moving away from that, now that was a challenge.

So we decided to bring a piece of it here with us and shareit with everyone. �After all, what better way to make new friends and share our culture that through food. �Which brings us to how we started our blog May I Have That Recipe? �from our passion for food, our love for people and our need to share both.�

The ingredients, the flavors and the stories behind our recipes might change, but we can guarantee one thing: like our friends, you won't leave our home without asking: May I Have That Recipe?�

  1. This sounds delish!

  2. Put avocado, pineapple, mango and fish together and you’ve got my attention. I imagine this will work for any fish if those “shrimp” aren’t available. I’ve never seen them in the stores.
