Rach shares a shrimp nachos recipe served with a green salsa made from tomatoes or tomatillos and inspired by the flavors of the Mexican coast of Veracruz.
Rach makes her pickled shallots, red onions and jalapeños by pickling them with wine vinegar, sugar, salt and black pepper.
For a festive meal, pair the nachos with John's Cucumber Margarita.
