Low-Carb Shrimp Cocktail with HorseradishPin recipeFollow us 108.0k

Shrimp Cocktail is such a classic appetizer at parties, especially around the holidays.

Typically though the sauce is full of sugar, not with this keto-friendly version though! All you need is a few simple ingredients to make a delicious cocktail sauce from scratch. You can use any sugar-free ketchup or even make your own keto ketchup in less than 15 minutes.

This shrimp cocktail is tangy and a bit spicy from the addition of horseradish. Instead of Tabasco you can use the leftover juice from our Fermented Sriracha Sauce - it's delicious and not as hot as Tabasco.
