You know for shrimp!
Fire-roasted cocktail sauce
- 1/2 cup of fire roasted tomatoes (blend if chunky)
- 1/2 cup of ketchup
- 4 tbsp horseradish sauce, the hotter the better
- 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- salt/pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients, serve with shrimp. We like boiling them or steaming them with lots of Old Bay seasoning, but we also saw a great recipe for roasted shrimp cocktail over at Swellkid. It’s got a great citrus kick, check it out.
I feel the same way about shrimp…funny that, it’s like a bottomless pit of appetite 😉 love your cocktail sauce – the worcestershire and lemon is perfect with the roasted tomato… yum!
You’re always working your magic on shrimp Greg! I love that about you! This sounds delicious!
My tummy is rumbling… now I need to research fire roasted tomatoes. Something tells me I’m going to find it on your blog elsewhere. You’re usually my go-to for such things.
Such an artful presentation. Perfect radial balance. What an eye!
And the shrimp and sauce are mouth watering!
Beautiful shot! Definitely looks good enough to EAT! 😀
Thanks for the link! I’ll try your sauce next time I make them!
Who knew cocktail sauce was so. freakin. EASY!!!!!!!!! Thank you for posting this!!!!
Wow, the size of those shrimp! I love your appetizers, as you know, and will remember this one the next time I have to prepare an appie…
I love shrimp cocktail but it always reminds me of the Harry Belafonte song/dinner scene in Beetlejuice.
this reminds me of my stay in New York! thanks for the memories and the recipe 🙂
I love shrimp like that!
Awesome recipe! I will have mine for starters, mains and pud thank you.
That is a serious sauce – that’s definitely going to get done.
Wow, wow, wow. This is my type of cocktail, prawns dipped in that sauce… Mmmmmmmmmm
You cocktail sauce recipe and mine are the same — except for the fire-roasted tomatoes. That one ingredient takes yours to another level, while mine is just a sauce. Well, not anymore. Great recipe, Greg!
Gorgeous – the Spaniards tend to eat their prawns pretty plain, but whenever I make a sauce they go made for it. Will give this one a try at the weekend!
fire roasted tomatoes? Nothing I’ve done before so I’m off to find out what it is.
Looks wonderful but ALL your food is so appealing!
I’m with you — I could eat shrimp all day long and never get tired of it. This sauce looks great.
HEY! That’s MY recipe!
Which means you’re doin’ it right… 🙂
as you know… we’ve got the same cute plate! I should use mine more often 😉
I am very fond of the roasted tomatoes, use them a lot, but never made a cocktail sauce with them – great move by the cool couple!
This looks very good. Nice work of food art.
That definitely kicks it up a notch, everybody in the pool! (the shrimp, that is)
I could absolutely eat shrimp all day long. We always have a platter of cocktail shrimp at Christmas and it’s the first thing gone every year. I had never thought to make our own sauce though, but next time I will! This would be good with some fried calamari too. Yum! 🙂
My son will only eat shrimp plain, that is to dip in cocktail sauce. I’ve already printed this as he also loves spicy anything!! I may actually get a smile out of that boy!! I’ve been roasting my shrimp ever since I saw Ina Garten do it!! It’s a great tip!
The more horseradish… the better! I like a big kick! 🙂
What a great retro appetizer, Greg. I love shrimp cocktail but rarely see it on a menu now-a-days. I love the fire roasted tomato sauce with it, very nice.
My tongue tingles just thinking of this. (But in a good way.)
oh yes I like this idea ! Looks delicious.
I could probably eat my weight in cocktail shrimp…..and that’s A LOT!!!! =)
What a lovely presentation! I would end this appetising dish in no time at all.
Lovely. And I’m very partial to Shrimp Cocktail that’s all shrimp + sauce, no other ingredients–leave the greens and other frilly things to the salads: this baby’s all about the flavor-packed sauce on sweet, sweet prawns!
My wife and in-laws eat shrimp cocktail like it’s candy. I’ll have to make this for them.
Also, I love Old Bay. I go through multiple tins of it in a year (mostly in seafood boils).
not the cocktail I was expecting but I guess it will have to do! Yummy.. c
We’ll have an actual (OK, virtual) cocktail for you in about two hours!
Looks good, great picture!
Yes, I know for shrimp lol. And this shrimp looks absolutely wonderful. There is nothing like spicy cocktail sauce to put hair on some men’s chest LOL
Mmm, homemade cocktail sauce! I love shrimp cocktail. If only Nate liked shrimp, this would be a perfect Valentine’s day appetizer 🙂
Fire roasted tomatoes add sooo much to any recipe. This sounds delish.
Looks delicious … as always. Something I would not share. (Though thanks to you for sharing.)
Shrimp shrimp shrimp – I’m gonna join in the general consensus in this thread that shrimps rox the sox! I must try and find me some of this Old Bay stuff. You rave about it so much. I wonder if I can find a place online that ships here.
First of all hits my eyes… so beautiful, like a flower… Should be so delicious too. You are amazing dear Rufus, Thank you, with my love, nia
What a beautiful photo…at first I thought I was looking at an exotic flower…but no….just a wonderful shrimp presentation. Fab!
This looks beautiful and I love shrimp cocktail. I cannot eat hot foods though.
Is it odd that I now feel like a plateful of these guys and it’s only eight in the morning?…no, didn’t think so.
So making this! For cornchips and prawns!
I’ve never made my own cocktail sauce; I bet this tastes WAY better than the bottled stuff…
