  • “I couldn’t remember what the ingredients were in cocktail sauce, and my buddy gave us some leftover food (including crab and shrimp) from his easter dinner to take home. Thanks for this “memory jog.” :)”

  • “I took the proportions down to basically a single serve since my husband wanted cocktail sauce and I was making him shrimp.He said it was great “tastes like cocktail sauce”, which means “it is perfect” in man language! Will definitely use it again, simple and fast!”

Simple to make and it has great taste. We didn’t change a thing. Thanks!”

  • “Rhis IS really good!DH brought home some shrimp, but forgot we were out of lettuce and other salad goodies.And all that was left in the coctail sauce jar was maybe a tbsp.Why anyone saved that I have no idea.But this tastes just like my favorite commercial sauce! I see lots more seafood cocktails in future!”
