Love Shrimp? This mouthwatering explosion of shrimp & salsa awesomeness is very easy to make — here’s how.


Drop the shrimp into the boiling water and turn off the heat. Cook the shrimp, stirring occasionally, until they curl and turn pink, about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes for medium shrimp, 3 minutes for large ones. Drain and cool to room temperature.

For cocktail sauce mix all ingredients.  Add hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
