I really liked this fresh, bright tasting sauce, my husband on the other hand did not like it at all--he found it to be too spicy. The shrimp was fantastic and both DH and I agreed it was five star worthy. The sauce was different from the usual cocktail sauce and definitely worth making from time to time. Made and reviewed for ZWT4. Thanks for posting.
