Not only does this taste AMAZING, it comes together in just a couple of minutes. What I love about making cocktail sauce at home is that you can adjust the ingredients to your liking. Adjust the horseradish as necessary to the amount of heat you want.
I recently came into an abundance of fresh, local shrimp (YES!) and served the sauce with this amazing recipe for Roasted Garlic Parmesan Shrimp. Not only is it perfect for shrimp, it goes well with oysters, fish and crab legs. What’s your favorite seafood to enjoy with cocktail sauce?

- 1 teaspoon hot sauce
