Shrimp Lugosi


prep 0:10       total 0:25


6 to 8 servings



1/4 cup prepared horseradish
1-1/2 cup catsup
1/3 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup minced yellow onion
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. Tabasco (or to taste)
4 lbs. raw lg. shrimp in the shell


Mix all ingredients except shrimp in a large bowl. Cover and chill. Add 2 teaspoons salt to 2 quarts water and bring to a boil. Place shrimp in water and return to a boil. Boil 3-5 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain immediately and chill.

Removing the shells is easy - pull slightly to separate body from the tail. Pull off the shell. With a small pointed knife, cut along outside curvature of the shrimp and lift out black sand vein, if desired. (The vein is harmless but not aesthetically pleasing.) Leave the tail attached as a "handle."

This is a traditional Shrimp Cocktail that can be spicy hot or mild depending on the amount of Tabasco.
