Ingredients

Shrimp

  • 2 pounds raw shrimp, with tail, peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Cocktail Sauce

  • ½ cup Heinz® chili sauce
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 3 Tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Instructions

Shrimp

  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Place shrimp a baking sheet pan, toss with the olive oil, salt, and pepper, and spread them in one layer.    
  • Roast for 8 to 10 minutes, just until pink and firm and cooked through.     
  • Set aside to cool.

Cocktail Sauce

  • Combine the chili sauce, ketchup, horseradish, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco.
  • Serve as a dip with the shrimp.

Notes

Gr8 Do-Ahead Tip:
The cocktail sauce can be made up to a week ahead of time and kept in a sealed jar in the refrigerator.
Gr8 Tip:
  • I have purchased a bag of frozen raw shrimp already deveined and peeled. Thaw according to package instructions before roasting.
  • This cocktail sauce will also be delicious with shrimp grilled on the barbecue for those outdoor gatherings.
