Shrimp Cocktail

This dish couldn’t be simpler. You could easily buy Coastal Seafoods pre-cooked shrimp and house-made cocktail sauce, but if you want to give it a go on your own, we commend you for the extra effort and surely your guests will too!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lbs Coastal Seafood Brand 16-20 Shrimp, Peeled and Deveined
  • 1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt
