These were WONDERFUL! I love cocktail sauce! I finally realized that it was cocktail sauce I liked more than the shrimp in shrimp cocktail so this recipe seemed right up my alley! I did make a slight change, however, after trying the original recipe. I wonder if many folks realize there is LOW SODIUM soy sauce available? I used that the second version instead & it worked beautifully! The original soy sauce level contained a WHOPPING 4735 mg. of sodium, (189% daily requirement) so by using the low sodium version, I was able to lower that amount, at least. In addition to that, after making it with this minor change, the next time I added about a Tablespoon of horseradish, to add spice. This was because my family requested "more zip";-). It did zip it, and again, the dish had the same wonderful flavor!
This recipe is DEFINITLY a keeper! I will admit that with the sodium issue & the high sugar element, I will have to limit the times I serve this wonderful meal! Thanks so much Bookchicadee for publishing this great "mistake". I hope the minor changes will inspire those who wanted more zip, & lower sodium to try it again. You won't be disappointed!
Now, if I can try with Splenda, I can lower the sugar level, but you can't always have everything! I'll update if I have any success.
