Shrimp Cocktail

Shrimp Cocktail

Makes 2 servings.

Approximate cooking time: 15 minutes


  • 1 pound shrimp, shelled and de-veined
  • 6 Tbs chili sauce (Trinity Hills Farms recommended-- look for one without sugar)
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1/2 Tbs horseradish
  • 1 tsp grated onion
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 2-4 lettuce leaves


  • Bring two quarts of water to a boil. Add shrimp and turn off heat. Let shrimp sit in the hot water for 3-5 minutes, until flesh is opaque throughout.
  • Remove cooked shrimp from water and rinse with cold water to chill immediately.
  • Meanwhile, whisk chili sauce, lemon juice, horseradish, and onion together to make the cocktail sauce.
  • Toss chilled shrimp with chopped celery.
  • Line cocktail cups with salad greens.
  • Spoon in shrimp mixture, top with sauce, and serve cold.

    Does the 1/2 T horseradish refer to grated horseradish root or prepared horseradish (in a jar with vinegar)?
