I have always poached shrimp, but never again. Roasting was just as easy and the shrimp were delicious. I added a generous grind of pepper over the shrimp and made the spicy sauce. A huge hit as an appetizer for New Year's.
This is the best shrimp cocktail EVER! I've served it on Super Bowl Sunday for several years - and everybody goes crazy for it.
Fantastic! Total roasting time was 5 minutes. The shrimp were perfectly cooked. The cocktail sauce recipe is delicious. Has a great kick. My guests couldn't get enough! I will use this recipe again and again.
Excellent and simple. Very highly complimented by my guests. This will become my staple shrimp cocktail recipe. Definitely use a homemade (spicy) cocktail sauce recipe from finecooking.com. It was the best as well.
Just discovered this recipe before Xmas - it's delicious & so easy. The sauce is great too. My go-to for shrimp cocktail now. Tks FC
My mom and I made this for a thanksgiving starter this year...oh.my.gosh. SO GOOD! Everyone said it was the best shrimp cocktail they'd ever had. I don't even like shrimp cocktail, and this was a revelation. YUM!
I have served this recipe several times at christmas. It was a big hit with my mother in law the shrimp snob.
Only negative is one time I served after sitting overnight in the frig. It did not have the same punch as when served on same day.
Wherever I go for the holidays, people beg me to bring this dish. I've been able to convince fast food junkies that shrimp rings are a really, really bad idea when fresh, delicious shrimp cocktail is this easy.
