This was delicious. I didn't think I could make soemething like this at home. It was very easy.

If you are a seafood lover, this is a simple recipe and delicious too.

This is the first recipe that I had to give less than 5 stars, and I feel horrible about it. Unfortunately the recipe leaves out a few pointers and doesn't call for enough cocktail sauce. I end...
