    Little Bee's Note:

    This is a wonderful dish to serve with any meal, or as an appetizer for a holiday meal. The addition of parsley and lemon slices as a garnish will compliment the red color of the shrimp for that festive appearance. This is sure to be a hit with seafood lovers!

      Excellent cocktail sauce, Little Bee. The only change I made was to add 1 tsp Tabasco Sauce. It's the perfect flavor and just the right amount of "kick". I can't wait for tomorrow to dive into it with those yummy boiled shrimp.
