    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    Looking for something just a little differfent to make for a lovely appetizer? Man Oh Man are these GOOD! Everyone goes nuts over these tasty little morsels! If I am making this dish just for myself, I don’t drain the shrimp. I let it marinate in the sauce in the refrigerator, and take out what I want and keep the rest in the refrigerator. They never stay in the refrigerator long though. Preparation time does not include the cleaning and deveining of the shrimp.

      Cover the container, and let it remain in the refrigerator at least 24 hours. (It is not necessary, but I do stir them once or twice in the 24-hour period. It is an excuse to sample one).

      Very nice! I made a 1/4 batch for myself as an afternoon snack (dh is allergic). I made it super easy by using a Ziploc bag to toss everything in and marinade with. Based on another reviewer, I used red onion and minced it small. I think next time I will leave the onion out altogether. I would also use half the amount of vinegar next time. I did add some horseradish sauce to it for zing and that turned out really nice. Overall a great recipe and nice change from traditional cocktail sauce. It's really nice that the sauce AND the shrimp are chilled well, and marinading really brings a lot of flavor 'into' the shrimp. Thanks for a keeper recipe. :)

      This was a nice change from the typical shrimp cocktail. I forgot to add vinegar and it was still great. I will make this again soon and I'm sure it'll be even better when I do it right!

      These shrimp are easy to prepare with ingredients you will most likely have on hand. I found the onion flavor to be overpowering. For me, this is not a make again recipe.
