Shrimp Cocktail Appetizer

Shrimp Cocktail  

Rely on the convenience of your local seafood counter to prepare this favorite starter. You will need:

  • 1 pound cooked medium or large shrimp
  • 1 jar cocktail sauce
  • assorted flavorings (see Tip below)

Try to get cooked shrimp with the tail still on, but any cooked shrimp will do. If still in their shells, peel the shells and leave the tail attached to act as a handle. Rinse the shrimp and set on a mound of ice in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Tip: Many varieties of premade cocktail sauce are available, but almost all can be enhanced with a few extra flavorings. Depending on your Mom's taste, add a bit of fresh lemon juice, horseradish, chopped onion, capers, Tabasco or other seasonings to brighten the flavor.

Serve the sauce in individual small cups or bowls, hanging the shrimp around the rim for dipping into it.
