Fresh News From the Coast!
If there was ever an essential condiment for fresh, simple seafood, it would be cocktail sauce.
Prawn cocktail, the dish where cocktail sauce originates, was originally served with shrimp hanging around the edge of a cocktail glass. This is the origin of the name.
This deft mixture of ketchup, chili sauce, horseradish and lemon juice is the classic accompaniment to fresh or fried shrimp, but is delicious on everything you’d find on the shellfish tower.
Here at Motts Channel Seafood we stock a few of our favorite, ready-to-serve sauces but we also encourage our customers to experiment. Maybe tailor the horseradish and hot sauce to your heat level, and switch up the flavors by using sriracha or a Mexican hot sauce like Cholula instead of the traditional Tabasco.
