    This is the best cocktail sauce I have ever tried. But it's best made right before serving as the texture changes.

    This is my go-to recipe for shrimp cocktail sauce; always a hit with our guests. I blend the ingredients in our small food processor, which gives it a smoother texture.

    A big hit with our guests. I had no chili sauce on hand but substituted an onion & pepper relish that I bought in Bermuda. An EXCELLENT recipe.
