Coctel De Camarones (Colombian-style Shrimp Ceviche Cocktail)

Note: For best results, use small, raw, shell-on shrimp and peel yourself (shelled shrimp tend to be a little mangled). Avoid par-cooked shrimp, as they will not absorb flavor properly. Traditional Colombian-style coctel is made with straight up mayo, ketchup, and hot sauce. I like adding some extra-virgin olive oil for extra flavor.
