I love using cocktail sauce for dipping boiled or grilled shrimp. When I don’t make my own I grab a bottle or two of Frog Bone’s Bayou Cocktail sauce. But there are times when you want something different. A different flavor than cocktail sauce, something fruity. Something without horseradish.
This mango-basil dipping sauce is different. It has a fantastic tropical flavor, making it perfect for shrimp.
You can make other variations of this great mango-basil dipping sauce simply by substituting other fruits for the mango, such as papaya or pineapple. If you want a little kick to your sauce, add a bit of hot sauce (preferably something fruity, like a habanero sauce) or even some red pepper flake. You can use different flavored hot sauces too, to come up with totally new versions of this dipping sauce. Cholula, one of my favorite hot sauces, makes this 5-pack that has all sorts of different flavored sauces.
These little sauce dipping cups are great for serving this sauce. They’re easy to clean up, too. And they’re also great for dipping nuggets, tenders or even chicken wings.
Also try my Delta Dippin’ sauce. It’s mighty yummy too!
