    This review is for the shrimp boil method only, as had a ton of cocktail sauce in the pantry. The boiling method is perfect!

    Came out perfectly! Boiling for three minutes was just the right time. This is a great recipe for the DASH diet sans the cocktail sauce.

    This simple recipe provides perfectly cooked and flavored shrimp cocktail. We are using these during our Christmas Eve celebration and can't wait to share them with our loved ones!

    So simple and with such a delicious outcome. My husband was most impressed and passed a tray among family members insisting everyone give them a try. I secretly had the thought of calling him the Shrimp Pimp.
