"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 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."
"Thank you! I made fried shrimp and had no cocktail sauce---this recipe was a life-saver!"
"Excellent as written."
"This is so easy and delicious. I will never by cocktail sauce again. Thank you!"
"Great tasting sauce for our shrimp! We enjoyed it so much!"
"This was really good! I planned on having shrimp for dinner but didn't realize I was out of cocktail sauce. Your recipe saved my dinner! Thanks for posting."
"Restaurant quality cocktail sauce that tasted delicious with the shrimp cocktail I made last night. I will always use this recipe from now on. It was so easy! Thank you."
"Really good! I used 1 1/2 tbsp horseradish and lime juice, just because I used my only lemon to boil my shrimp in. I also used 1/2 cup chili sauce and 1/2 cup ketchup. YUM!"
"I've been making my own cocktail sauce for several years now but never thought to add Worcestershire sauce. It was a great addition."
"Made this last night and it is great! Made exactly to recipe. Thanks!"
"This was excellent -- I usually hate all other forms of purchased cocktail sauce because they're too sweet or just blah. However, sometimes I just purchase Silver Springs cocktail sauce (found in the cold-case deli section of the store) and add a little extra horseradish to it and it's very good."
"Very easy to make with ingredients around the kitchen. I doubled the quantities and added a dash of Louisiana Hot Sauce to kick it up. Everyone in the party enjoyed it and wanted some more. Next time I will triple the quantities."
"Great sauce! I cut it down to 1/4 of the recipe, just estimating ingredient amounts that became too small to measure. So easy and tastes perfect! I am definitely keeping this recipe, thanks!"
"yum yum....definitely 2 Tblsps. of horseradish for our tastebuds!"
"My husband dislikes horseradish and he enjoyed this sauce. Served with cod cakes. Halved the recipe, using 1 Tbsp horseradish, but still had extra. Will cut it in fourths to make enough for only a meal."
