CHEF NOTES

Shrimp Cocktail With 4 Dipping Sauces - A Shortcut To Thaw Frozen ShrimpA Shortcut To Thaw Frozen Shrimp

I always keep frozen shrimp on hand.  Of course, I stock up my freezer when shrimp is on sale.  Here is a quick way to thaw shrimp and cook it with other ingredients for any stove top recipes.

Follow the directions in this recipe to cook the shrimp and cool it down in ice water.  If you need to shell the shrimp, go ahead and do it.  If not, you can cook another ingredients, for instance pasta, that you plan on pairing with shrimp.  Toss shrimp into your dish to finish it off and enjoy!

There are 4 dressings or sauces here.  Feel free to add or reduce number of varieties to fit your budget and time.

Party Shrimp Cocktail With 4 Dipping Sauces Recipe and Instructions

Ingredients

3 lbs Frozen Shrimp

Sauce #1 - Orange Sriracha (Great for dipping fried chicken, too)
1/3 cup Orange Marmalade
1 tsp Sriracha Sauce (or Buffalo Hot Sauce)
Salt and pepper to taste

Sauce #2 - Super Easy Chimichurri Sauce (I love this Sauce on my steak as well)
Lime Zest
1 Lime (juiced)
1 Minced Garlic
1 tsp Freeze Dried Cilantro
Drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Sauce #3 - Honey Garlic Sauce (this is a great salad dressing, too)
1 Minced Garlic
1 tsp Grated Ginger or 1/4 tsp Ginger Powder
1/4 cup Honey
2 tsp Superior Light Soy Sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

Sauce #4 (I use store bought)
Regular Shrimp Cocktail Sauce

  1. In 3 separate small serving bowls, mix the first 3 sauces/dressings separately to taste.
  2. In a big bowl, fill 1/3 of its capacity with ice and add filtered cold water.  Put it aside and we will use this ice water to cool down the shrimp later.
  3. Bring a soup pot of water to boil.
  4. Add shrimp into the boiling water.
  5. Once it boils again, let shrimp cook another 2-3 minutes or until opaque.
  6. Use a slotted spoon to transfer shrimp to the bowl of ice water to stop its cooking process.
  7. Drain water and serve immediately along with dressings.
  8. Or store in food container and chill overnight and serve later.
