I usually buy raw shrimp for cooking at home. But, today I decided to buy some cooked shrimp for Shrimp Cocktail. I bought 16-20/lb size cooked shrimp.
Instead of buying cocktail sauce, I quickly looked up a recipe on my phone while we were in the store and discovered I'd be able to whip it up very quickly at home, but I needed some creamed horseradish.
Here's what I made...
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp. horseradish
1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
squeeze one wedge of lemon juice into the sauce (I squeezed 2-3 wedges).
For the spicy cocktail sauce person, modify the amount of horseradish. I took about 1/3 of the mixture out and put it in a separate bowl and added an extra teaspoon of creamed horseradish.
The best thing about making cocktail sauce at home is that you can adjust the zinginess of the sauce. I could make it non-zingy for my daughter and very zingy for my husband!
