Did you know that bottled cocktail sauce can contain as much as six grams of sugar in just one tablespoon? Imagine how much you eat on a few shrimp! This recipe can be mixed up in a couple of minutes, and each tablespoon has just one gram of sugar (from the tomato), and only six calories. This is a basic recipe that can be altered to taste - for example, horseradish varies widely in freshness and potency, so you'll want to adjust for the type you have.
- 1 cup sugar-free ketchup (I used Heinz Reduced Sugar Tomato Ketchup)
- 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- hot sauce, such as Tabasco, to taste
Mix ingredients together, taste, and add more horseradish or hot sauce if desired. You can also add a little sweetener if that is to your taste.
