Roasted Shrimp Cocktail / Cocktail Sauce


Roasted Shrimp Cocktail / Cocktail Sauce

This is the most delicious shrimp cocktail!  And the sauce is the best too.

For the shrimp:

  • 2 lbs. (12 to 15 count) shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon good olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For the cocktail sauce:

  • 1/2 cup Heinz chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup Heinz ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails on.  Place them on a sheet pan with the olive oil, salt, and pepper and spread them in one layer.  Roast for 8 to 10 minutes, just until pink and firm and cooked through.  Set aside to cool.

For the sauce, combine the chili sauce, ketchup, horseradish, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco.  Serve as a dip with the shrimp.

Serves 6 to 8.
