Homemade Seafood Cocktail Sauce has as little as 4 ingredients and takes less than 5 minutes to make. You can use the sauce immediately. For more intense flavor, refrigerate overnight.
The amount of sodium in your sauce depends on the brand of ketchup you use. Use a reduced sodium ketchup if you are on a sodium restricted diet. You can also control the amount of sodium be reducing portion size.
Seafood Cocktail Sauce is usually mildly spicy for American tastes. Some are even bland. Adjust the amount of heat to your taste from mild to hot by adjusting the amount of hot sauce and horseradish. If your sauce is too hot for your taste, add more ketchup to reduce the heat.
