Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. This recipe for basic cocktail sauce is the perfect accompaniment to seafood favorites like shrimp, calamari, crab, and so much more. The tabasco sauce is totally optional for those who prefer sauce with a kick to it. If preparing this for kids, or anyone who simply does not care for too much spice, feel free to leave it out and you will still have a flavorful sauce from the other ingredients.

MacGyver'ed cocktail sauce

Brought some tasty Dungeness crab to work for lunch and forgot cocktail sauce, so I took three packs of ketchup one pack of horseradish a little Tabasco and finally sprinkled some lemon Crystal light and mixed together turned out great, special thank you to the canteen lady for providing the packets.

I have been making my own sauce for years. Nothing store bought any more. I do add more horseradish for extra zip. Family expects this everytime we entertain.

Just more proof that keeping it simple is the best way to go. This is a great sauce on its own, but can accommodate variations, too. This recipe tastes like the best quality sauces you would find in markets, but has better depth and finish, and compliments the food. Nicely.

This was so easy and good, I'll never buy cocktail sauce again! I added a dash of A-1 to give it a little richer flavor, and it turned out very fresh and tangy.

So easy, and we had everything we needed on hand already. We had to add a little extra ketchup to thicken it...the lemon juice made it a little runny.
