Shrimp Cocktail


I felt bad posting two weeks worth of menu's in a row without having any recipes in between. I had planned on blogging at least one meal from last week but I kept forgetting to take pictures. So I had to dig through all of the food pictures on my computer to find something I hadn't blogged yet.

    • 1 lb. shrimp, shells on*
    • 2 tbs. Old Bay
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 vinegar

Cocktail Sauce:
    • 3 tbs. ketchup
    • 1-1 1/2 tsp. prepared horseradish

1. In a medium sauce pan, add the water, vinegar and Old Bay. Bring to a boil. Add the shrimp and cook for 3-5 minutes. Drain the liquid.
2. In a small dish stir together the ketchup and horseradish, adding more of each to taste.
3. Serve shrimp warm or cold with cocktail sauce.

* Depending on how you purchase your shrimp, you may also need to devein them. Mine came deveined with shells on.

I know this is kinda simple for a recipe, but its one of those appetizers that can be easily put together in a short amount of time. A few weeks back when we had an appetizer night I made these.
