Spicy Seafood Cocktail Sauce

By Vicki McClure Davidson


Spicy Seafood Cocktail Sauce Recipe

Why pay 2 dollars or more for a small jar of seafood cocktail sauce when you can make your own, fast and cheaply? Not only is this recipe extremely low cost, but it's fresher tasting.


Spicy Seafood Cocktail Sauce


Combine all the ingredients and chill for a few hours, so the flavors can meld together, until ready to serve. How easy is that?

This simple cocktail sauce is excellent with all chilled seafood, fishsticks, or as a spicy sandwich spread, or a zesty dipping sauce for French fries or tater tots.

You can make a larger quantity in advance and use it in dinner preparations as an exciting side condiment for any meats or scrambled eggs.

Store the cocktail sauce in the refrigerator in a glass container, as the acids in the ketchup and lemon could corrode and possibly stain plasticware. Because of the acids, though, it will last in the fridge for a long time if kept in an airtight container.
