Shrimp cocktail is a simple hors d'oeuvre that is so easy to prepare but will be the biggest hit of your cocktail table or buffet.
Never let the star of your buffet fall because you used a store-bought cocktail sauce. Use this 3 minute recipe and not only will you know what you put in it, but you can adjust the horseradish and hot sauce to your liking. For us, the more horseradish the better!
1 cup ketchup
2-3 tbsp prepared horseradish (in jar) (start with 2 then add to your liking)
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
green tabasco sauce
In a medium mixing bowl add ketchup, 2 tbsp horseradish sauce, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, black pepper and whisk together.
Add more horseradish 1 tsp at a time and a few drops of green tabasco sauce until you reach the flavor you love.
Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour so the flavors will meld.
