Folk are getting ready to gather, and there will be shrimp, so, we’re gonna need some cocktail sauce.
And by cocktail sauce, no, I do not mean that stuff you buy in a jar at the market; have you seen those ingredients?
Fortunately, an old friend’s mom has given me The Way to make The Best Cocktail Sauce. Loaded with lemon juice and horseradish and spicy ketchup and chili sauce and stuff.
It’s fast to toss together, too.
•1/4 cup ketchup
•1/4 cup chili sauce
•2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
•2 tbsp horseradish
•1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
•1 tsp hot sauce
Note: this recipe can easily be doubled, or even tripled, so, have fun!
Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl, then transfer to a covered jar and chill for a few hours before serving to allow the flavors to fully blend.
