    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.

      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.
