Quick Cocktail Sauce

Nothing is better with boiled, steamed or roasted shrimp than a simple cocktail sauce. I could dunk shrimp in this thick tasty quick cocktail sauce all day long. This sauce went perfectly with the Bubba Gump shrimp I made on my Char-Broil Big Easy and my Old Bay Peel’N Eat Shrimp. In the time it took the shrimp to cook I made a big batch of sauce and was eating delicious shrimp in less than 10 minutes.

Quick Cocktail Sauce

Add a few shakes of your favorite hot sauce or a few pinches of red pepper flake for a little kick. I prefer my quick cocktail sauce really cold. I stick it in the freezer for a bit just before serving.

If you prefer to use pre-made cocktail sauce with your shrimp, I can’t recommend Frog Bone’s Bayou Cocktail sauce enough. It combines the flavor of a traditional cocktail sauce with Cajun seasonings. It’s outstanding!

This sauce is also great for dipping crispy fried shrimp.
