I am a fan of the cocktail sauce at Captain D's. Oh and all that battered and fried seafood too. We don't eat that anymore though. That used to be the only fish my young boys would eat and they had a great family deal. But now we eat healthier. That doesn't mean I can't like a sugar free cocktail sauce with my grilled shrimp.
I had an older recipe that I published about a year ago in the newsletter, but I like this one better. It has some bite, so be warned. You can always cut the amount of horseradish if you want.

This is excellent with grilled shrimp!
We have been so busy lately; it has been tough finding time to blog. We prepared a formal dinner last night for my son and several of his friends who were attending the Prom. Since none of these long time friends were "dating" we parents got together and provided a beautiful dinner. We served them, and then amused ourselves out on the patio while the teenagers dined in private. It was a nice evening. I am so glad we have the kind of teens who appreciate family and don't act as if we are too uncool. With prom clothing costing hundreds, this dinner was a blessing for the budget and still very nice!
After we served the kids and they went off for the big event, we came home and made our own low carb meal. None of the bow tie pasta or Oreo cake for us!
