This recipe is beyond simple. With only four ingredients: lemon pepper, shrimp, fresh lime juice and olive oil, that’s really all you need besides your favorite cocktail sauce. I used “Naturally Fresh” cocktail sauce (which I found at Whole Foods). I am teaching a cooking class for college students in two weeks, and this is perfect for them or anyone in a hurry who wants something fresh and delicious.
Now that summer is here, so many friends ask me what can they easily prepare while they’re vacationing at the lake or beach, or even just relaxing at home. I can creatively come up with hundreds of recipes, but why not go back to the basics and serve Classic Shrimp with Cocktail Sauce. This recipe is a cinch, and adults and kids always love it. Its a great way to serve a healthy protein appetizer or serve with a salad for dinnertime. If you don’t have time to prepare homeade cocktail sauce, I love Fresh Market’s brand cocktail sauce.
