This is our favorite shrimp cocktail sauce. Very simple and can be made ahead.


  1. Combine all ingredients except shrimp.
  2. Chill sauce thoroughly.
  3. Before serving, mix shrimp with sauce.
  4. Serve over lettuce or in a wine glass for a nice presentation.

Oh so good!!! I cooked the shrimp with a bit of salt and pepper, placed it on shredded lettuce and spooned the sauce in the centre so we could dip as much as we wanted to. I'm not a saucy girl (lazyme might argue with that!), so I prefer to use it to taste. I like this cocktail sauce a lot - it's different than most, maybe a bit smoother and not quite so tangy. Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks a lot lazyme! :)
