Cocktail Sauces

The various kinds of shell fish are served so frequently as cocktails that cocktail sauces are much in demand. The foundation of these sauces is always tomato catsup, but the ingredients used for seasoning usually vary according to individual taste. The following recipes make amounts sufficient for one serving:

Cocktail Sauce I

  • 1/4 teaspoon grated horseradish
  • juice of 1/4 lemon
  • 12 drops tobasco sauce
  • 10 drops Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato catsup

Cocktail Sauce II

  • 1 tablespoon tomato catsup
  • 1 tablespoon grapefruit juice
  • 1 teaspoon spiced vinegar
  • dash of tobasco sauce
  • sprinkling of salt
  • dusting of chopped parsley


Mix the ingredients thoroughly and serve with oysters, clams, lobster, shrimp, or crab meat thoroughly chilled.
