This recipe for shrimp cocktail is way better than any cold recipe I have ever tried! I saw it on Food Network by Ina of Barefoot Contessa... The shrimp is so flavorful!! The original recipe also included a cocktail sauce, but they were so good, we didn't even need sauce!

These shrimp are awesome!! I have been roasting shrimp for some time, no more boiled shrimp for me, they are tasteless now. They are great in other shrimp dishes too, good hot or cold. I add about a tablespoon of garlic powder to the salt and pepper, put all in a zip-loc bag, shake away and put on a sprayed sheet pan. Served with fresh lemons and a classic homemade cocktail sauce. Couldn't be simpler. Try this one NOW, you will get rave reviews! Thanks for posting, TiffyMadrox.
