Dipping Sauces for Shrimp
« on: February 24, 2008, 02:23:30 PM »
At the shower I am throwing, we are going to have a shrimp platter.  We will have regular cocktail sauce, but I wanted a couple other dips for the shrimp.

I found this one on All Recipes that I am going to try. 

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons ketchup
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1 dash ground black pepper
cayenne pepper to taste


DIRECTIONS
In a small bowl combine mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish, paprika, salt, oregano, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.


Anyone have any other ideas?

Hm. Maybe roasted garlic aioli? Or would the combo have too much sweetness?

I have one very similar to yours but it uses less horseradish and no oregano or paprika.  In place of these, I just sort of eyeball this but I toss in capers, dill, lemon juice, scallions.  I've been told it's very similar to a remoulade (??) sauce.

Another fun one is just a basic curry dip.  They're all over the internet but I use mainly mayo, just a touch of sour cream, curry powder to taste, tarragon vinegar for flavor and consistency, pinch of ginger and teeeeny pinch of garlic.

Unfotunately, I hate curry.  :-\

I found a very easy, basic recipe for Cilantro-Lime Mayonnaise.  That should work, right?

Here's a Mexican twist on the cocktail sauce.  You don't have to put the shrimp in the sauce, just keep them separate for dipping, and forgo the chips.

How about an alfredo dip?

Sweat some garlic in a little butter, add some softened cream cheese, heavy cream, and freshly grated parmesan.  Add salt and black pepper to taste.


I also like pureed avocado thinned with a little chicken broth and a dash of lemon or lime juice and black pepper as a dipping sauce, but I might just be weird.

We are actually going to be doing a parmesan fondue, to serve with veggies and bread, so I guess we can use that for the shrimp too!

Or something really simple like fresh lime juice, chopped chilies and fish sauce (or salt).

I tried this one recently, and it was AWESOME:

1 jar apricot-pineapple jam
Prepared horseradish sauce to taste

Microwave 1 - 2 minutes or until melted, then stir and serve.

I could have just eaten the dipping sauce with a spoon, it was so good.  I'm guessing that if you are serving chilled shrimp instead of fried shrimp (which was what I had with the sauce), it might taste better if you chilled the sauce after cooking it.  Cold shrimp in a warm dipping sauce might be gross.

Gosh, I won't know til you share it  :)

It sounds awesome!!.  I love cilantro and I'd want something to contrast with the salsa or tomato thing.
