What is there not to love!? This is simplicity at it's best...with flavors of the sea, the spiciness of the chili Tabasco sauce, the pink peppercorns, and the cayenne. Yeeehaaww! I followed "FT's" instruction of putting some field greens into the shot glass, then I took and un-used medicine cap, turned it upside down and filled it with the sauce. You couldn't tell it was there, and fit into the shot glass perfectly. I also added a few extra steamed shrimp next to the glass with toothpicks so people could grab the shrimp from that point and dip into the sauce in the glass. Perfection, and as snazzy as a dressed up cat!

These were very good! I would have used tomato paste in place of the ketchup, just our personal preference! Thanks again for a great recipe FT.

These were wonderful! Nice amount of tang that really added to the dish without overpowering it. Only change I made was that I didn't have pink peppercorns so instead used a light sprinking of hot paprika instead. I made a smaller number of cocktails but the full amount of sauce which was also great served over the main of crumbed fish, corn fritters and salad.

So easy and still getting complements the next day. I used curly escarole (had it on hand) and some small pieces of avocado. Added quite a bit of tobasco and then a splash of Worcestershire Sauce. Made it to order for a dinner party as a starter option. Thanks for a fun, pretty, tasty and simple dish!

My Brother and DH love a "pink" sauce w/ their seafood so I just had to make these. Added a lot more Tabasco but we like it spicy and omitted the pink peppercorns-didn't have them. So fast and easy; I didn't have shot glasses so used my MIL's champagne coupes for a pretty and DELICIOUS appetizer. Thank you for a great recipe, French Tart!!!
