Cocktail SauceThis easy recipe for homemade cocktail sauce is great with any seafood.  Use it for shrimp cocktails, fried shrimp or any fish where you like a hot sauce.  You can make it mild or as hot as you like by just adjusting the ingredients to suit your taste and I think anything’s better homemade.  You could double or even triple this recipe for a crowd and it keeps well refrigerated for at least a week.
