Cocktail Sauce

Cocktail sauce is one of several types of cold or room temperature sauces often served as part of the dish(es) referred to as seafood cocktail or as a condiment with other seafoods. It generally consists of ketchup mixed with prepared horseradish. Some restaurants use chilli sauce, a spicier tomato based sauce in place of the ketchup.

The common form of cocktail sauce in Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland, France and Belgium, usually consists of mayonnaise mixed with a tomato sauce to the same pink colour as prawns, producing a result that could be compared to Thousand Island Dressing or Fry Sauce. Furthermore, in Belgium, a dash of whiskey is often added to the sauce, and in Iceland, sour cream is considered essential. It is popularly served with steamed shrimp and seafood on the half shell. In Australia, it is often provided in fish and chip shops.
