Notes

Gr8 Do-Ahead Tip:
The cocktail sauce can be made up to a week ahead of time and kept in a sealed jar in the refrigerator.
Gr8 Tip:
  • I have purchased a bag of frozen raw shrimp already deveined and peeled. Thaw according to package instructions before roasting.
  • This cocktail sauce will also be delicious with shrimp grilled on the barbecue for those outdoor gatherings.
