I have been making this terrific cocktail sauce from scratch for more than thirty years! I haven't used a recipe in about that length of I have to go with my memory for measures. This is a favorite cocktail sauce all over the Gulf Coast! This cocktail sauce is made to compliment many kinds of seafood. Terrific with Southern fried shrimp, fish & oysters!
