I've never reviewed a recipe although I have used and enjoyed many from this site. I felt compelled to make an exception for this one because it had so few reviews. This is just awesome and much better than store bought sauce. I only had plain chili sauce so I added a smidge of garlic powder. It had just the right amount of kick for me but was to hot for my mother (but she thinks mild salsa is a bit too hot!). You won't be disappointed with this one! Read More

Forgot to pick up cocktail sauce for a party so in a panic found this recipe. It's just as good if not better than the jar. Only thing I changed after tasting it was to add a sprinkle of garlic powder. Also I didn't have chili sauce so I just added some chili powder to the catsup and tasted great. Read More

Nice and hot! I didn't have chili-garlic sauce so I just added some minced garlic. Perfect for shrimp! Read More

The perfect shrimp cocktail! Way better than the jar. I also didn't have the chili-garlic sauce so I just added a clove of garlic. Really good... I won't be buying my shrimp cocktail sauce anymore! Read More

Delicious! Taste & texture just like in the restaurant. For the chile-garlic sauce I used LaChoy Ginger Garlic paste (because it was what I had on hand) & it was perfect! I think it gave it a very subtle exotic flare. My husband said "this is awesome!" and that's high praise for him. I made this to go along with perch fresh from the Adirondacks. So I think this would nicely accompany any fish. It was also great for dipping french fries in. Definitely won't ever buy prepared again! Read More

Fantastic! We are Americans living in the UK for the next year and they use mayo in EVERYTHING including their shrimp sauce.... When we couldn't find red shrimp sauce anywhere I decided to make it myself. My husband raves about it and says when we return to the states we will never resort to store bought sauce again. Super easy and very tasty! Added some tabasco since we like the flavor in our shrimp sauce and used to add it back home but aside from that followed recipe exactly. Read More
