Cocktail sauce is one of those ubiquitous condiments in the U.S. that is always ordered to enhance seafood cocktails, especially shrimp or oysters. Typically a pedestrian mix of ketchup and horseradish, I have given this a sprinkling of TFD magic to elevate the recipe to an entirely new plane of celestial existence. 🙂
Nobody knows the origins of this condiment, but my version has a true pedigree – my own! Combining American and British flavors with a touch of Asia and Europe and the merest whisper of the Caribbean and Mexico, I hope you find favor with the depth of flavor and complexity inherent in the DNA of this most delicious of worldwide sauces! Boosted with herbs, gin and a complex blend of spices and umami flavors, your taste buds will truly feel a new level of fevered desire as you partake, my Citizens!
