  • I buy the frozen pink shrimp. you just have to thaw it out I usually put it in the strainer and run cold water on it. I like to add horseradish to the bottle cocktail sauce and it will clean out your sinuses!!! Maybe too spicy for kids but good!

  • Remember that either way you do it, that shrimp won't last long after they are cooked or thawed, esp. with the heat of camping, and even in a fridge. 2-3 days max.

  • horseradish and ketchup is all cocktail sauce really is. Just put some ketchup in a dish and add horseradish puree until it is the taste you like. And it is so much cheaper than buying the premade cocktail sauce.

  • I've also made the "homemade" cocktail sauce like anonymous. It's delicious!
