My classic version of the Shrimp Cocktail boasts big, plump, succulent, perfectly-cooked shrimp that is so easy to make that you’ll never look at this appetizer the same way again.
Cocktail Shrimp: – Shrimp – Old Bay – Pickling seasoning (optional) – Lemon Cocktail Sauce: – Ketchup – Heinz chili sauce – Worcestershire sauce – Horseradish – Lemon juice
Seasoned water with Old Bay, pickling spice, and half a lemon with the lemon juice squeezed into it.
After the shrimp have chilled, peel and devein the shrimp. Serve the Shrimp Cocktail on crushed ice with cocktail sauce and a lemon wedge.
