Classic Shrimp Cocktails with Sauce

Shrimp - Allow about 6 pieces per person (21-25 size)
4 quarts Water
2 TB Old Bay Seasoning
Juice of 1 Lemon
1-1/2 cups Catsup
1-1/2 cups Chili sauce
1/3 cup Lemon Juice, fresh
1/3 cup Horseradish
3 TB Green Onion, minced
1 TB Worcestershire Sauce
Crushed Ice
Lemon Slices and Fresh Parsley Sprigs for Garnish

Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails on. In a large stockpot, combine water, Old Bay and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Add shrimp and cook until until opaque; shrimp will begin to float to the top of the water. Remove from water and plunge in ice water (this step halts the cooking process and avoids mushy shrimp.) Drain immediately and refrigerate.

To Prepare Cocktail Sauce: Combine catsup, chili sauce, lemon juice, horseradish, green onion, and Worcestershire sauce; refrigerate. (Makes 3 cups)

To Serve: For each serving, fill a shot glass with sauce and place in the center of a martini glass. Surround the shot glass with crushed ice. Arrange shrimp around edges of glass and garnish with lemon slices and a sprig of parlsey.
