  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. This is so easy and delicious. I will never by cocktail sauce again. Thank you!
  5. 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!


  1. Substituted Horseradish for Wasabi (use less than called for) and added 4 tsp dehydrated chopped onions.
  2. very easy to make and delicious - I didn't have lemon juice so I used lime juice instead. Tastes just like the kind you buy, but much nicer to make your own, knowing what goes into it!
  3. This is the same cocktail sauce my mother used to make and I've been making it for well over 45 years. The only difference is that I begin with Chili Sauce instead of catsup. If you haven't tried it that way, please do. I think it will make this excellent recipe even better.
  4. I love this! I used wasabi instead of tradional horseradish. Gave it a nice bold kick. Simple and items on hand in most pantries. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing!


I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
