great recipe!! I used 1 1/2 TBLS horseradish and found it had just the right bite. And all the ingedients were staples I already had on the shelf so you can make it on a moments notice. I always keep a bag of frozen cooked shrimp in the freezer and this was perfect with it.

This is a wonderful cocktail sauce, and so easy to make. It's best made a little ahead. We've had it with shrimp and with crabcakes. DH even made it all by himself once!!! Thanks, Darlene.

I made this for Christmas Eve. All my family thought this was the best ever. I have added this to my recipe file and I don't think I will ever buy ready made again. So easy to make.

Wow! What a great flavour! I used 2 tblspns of horseradish and added a zested clove of garlic. No need to ever buy storbought again, this was way too good and very economical to boot!

This is nice to put together at the last minute to go with boiled shrimp. Half a batch is enough for our family. Thanks for sharing!

This worked out great when we someone brought shrimp but no sauce. I did not have horseradish so I used Dijon mustard. which will work if in a pinch.

This is incredible! I make an appetizer that is baby shrimp and cocktail sauce pored over a block of cream cheese and this sauce made it amazing. I have always liked the appetizer, but yesterday at my Superbowl party, all of it disappeared in record time! Thanks for posting this recipe. I added the full 2TBS of horseradish and I will never buy pre-made cocktail sauce again.
