A seafood dish or appetizer consisting of perfectly cooked shrimp that can be dipped in cocktail sauce. Perfect for any game day appetizer or Holiday party.
Shrimp cocktail is probably one of my favorite appetizers at a party and can be a great 0 point snack to eat if you are following the blue or purple plan on myWW. For anyone doing Green, it will be 1 point per serving.
It’s pretty easy to whip up if you get shrimp that are already peeled and deveined. Just toss them on a sheet pan and season them with some lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Bake them at 400 degrees for only 5 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink. I like to buy frozen shrimp at Sam’s Club. To make the cocktail sauce zero points make your own version instead. The store-bought shrimp cocktail sauce is 3 smart points for 1/4 cup but this version is 0 points if you use reduced sugar ketchup and prepared horseradish. Just go easy on that, cause it’s super spicy.
This week has been a really good week! Yesterday I paid off my student loans and got my taxes sent out. Hope the week is going well for you guys. Sometimes I don’t really know what recipe I’m going to make for this blog. I’d like to get down to a certain posting schedule during the week but I don’t think that’s going to ever happen. Most of the time I’m inspired by something I see on social media. Weight Watchers had posted a picture of shrimp cocktail on their Instagram and that made me have a bad craving for this! It’s even better when you got all the ingredients on hand.Print
- 20 peeled and deveined shrimp
- salt and pepper
- 1 lemon
- For the Sauce
- 2 oz of reduced sugar ketchup
- 1 tsp of prepared horseradish
- 1 tsp of lemon juice
- 1/8 tsp of worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place shrimp on baking sheet and season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink. While the shrimp is cooking make the cocktail sauce. Combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and whisk until well combined. When the shrimp come out of the oven squeeze some lemon juice on top of the shrimp. Enjoy.
