i add 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 2 little shakes worchestershire and increase the horseradish (real not creamy) to 1-1/2 tablespoons. this makes a excellent cocktail sauce for large shrimp
I was going to post my shrimp cocktail recipe but this one is very similar and delicious!!Instead of catsup I use all chilli sauce and a whole teaspoon of horseraddish with a little more tobasco, we like the sauce quite hot spicy. Also trimmed the glasses with spinach leaves instead of lettuce and garnished with lemon and a sprinkle of chopped green onion and parsley. Excellant shrimp cocktail!

I agree with Derf. Excellent cocktail sauce. I cut back on the catsup, added more chilli sauce and a bunch more horseraddish with a little more tobasco. We like our sauce with just a little bit of bite. It was very nice to have a homemade sauce for my shrimp that I could modify and kick up the heat a bit. (I never know when buying a bottle of cocktail sauce at the store, whether it will be really sweet, or spicy, or what; not to mention the many other additional ingredients that come in a jarred sauce). I will use this sauce whenever I need a cocktail sauce.
