When is shrimp cocktail not a hit at a party? And it's easy to make, too!


Uncooked shrimp

16 oz, medium, peeled and deveined


½ cup(s)

Fresh lime juice

2 tbsp(s), or Key lime juice

Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp(s)

Hot pepper sauce

½ tsp(s)


  1. Rinse the shrimp under cold water and place them in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover them; heat just until the water begins to simmer. Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside 1 minute, or until the shrimp are opaque in the centre. Drain the shrimp, then plunge them into a bowl of ice water. Drain and pat dry with paper towels. Arrange on a serving platter.
  2. To make the cocktail sauce, combine the ketchup, key lime juice, Worcestershire sauce and pepper sauce in a small bowl. Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more hot pepper sauce or Worcestershire sauce as desired. Serve the shrimp with the cocktail sauce.
