Crab, Shrimp, or Prawn Cocktail
A crab, shrimp or jumbo prawn (jumbo shrimp) cocktail offers the dinner host an easy and most elegant appetizer. Your favorite shellfish mixed with a dollop of Paladini Cocktail Sauce creates not only a wonderful epicurean delight but also creates a gala mood. The hint of fresh horseradish, lemon juice and herbs are already mixed to perfection so all you have to add is the shellfish … and your guests.
1 pound crabmeat, shrimp meat or jumbo cooked “tails-on" prawns (shrimp).
1 jar Paladini Cocktail Sauce
To refresh the full flavor, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a teaspoon of fresh horseradish and mix in.
Evenly divide the shellfish into four portions, then place into shellfish cocktail glasses, if using jumbo prawns arrange around top of glass. You can also place the shellfish on small shallow bowls or on a large lettuce leaf. There are endless ways to present your cocktail, elegant or casual. Spoon two large tablespoons of the cocktail sauce in the center of the glass or over the shellfish, depending on your presentation. Add a wedge of lemon for color if you wish … and enjoy!

“Personally", I like to cook in a seperate pot using another jar of sauce, the fish pieces and prawns (and if using, the scallops), for 5-6 minutes, starting when the crab is heated through, also adding white wine and lemon juice. The fish pieces will not get broken up and It is easier to find these succulent items to serve in equal portions.
Serve with fresh sour dough French bread. You are now ready to enjoy …“The Authentic Taste of San Francisco"
