Seafood Cocktail Sauce
Courtesy Hope family recipes
25ml tomato sauce
5ml lemon juice (or tot brandy/sherry)
spice with pepper/paprika/tabasco
freshly washed lettuce leaves (optional)
Mix all the ingredients together. This is a basic seafood cocktail sauce, although using salsa instead of ketchup will give it an interesting twist.
Steam seafood or sauté in butter. Serve with the seafood sauce as a dip.
Alternatively add the seafood to the cocktail sauce. Use small dessert bowls or glasses and lay a fresh washed lettuce leaf in each. Place dollops of seafood mixture on lettuce leaf. Refrigerate and serve cold.
