Eric and I go to Whole Foods a few times a month to see what’s on sale and get produce. I always check their seafood and, this past weekend, was excited to see cocktail shrimp on sale (actually some fresh caught tuna was also on sale, but that recipe will have to wait until tomorrow 🙂 ). I’ve always loved shrimp cocktail, but the sauce is almost always too full of salt and sugar – and who knows what else! This is a super quick and easy cocktail sauce. The only trouble you’ll have is waiting for it to chill, I always want to start dipping those shrimp as soon as it’s mixed…actually it’s still good then, it’s just better if you let it chill for a couple of hours.
1 cup low sugar ketchup
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 – 1/2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
Combine all ingredients in a small bow and stir to blend well. Cover and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.
