My sister-in-law reintroduced me to shrimp cocktail because she often puts out a plate when we arrive to visit. It's so simple. It's so delicious -- if you get good cocktail sauce. Frank's sells bottle of Kelchner's, which has a fiery horseradish flavor a cut above most cocktail sauce.
This is a nice pick-up -- either to put on shrimp that you buy at Frank's or to store for a quick meal. Peel and steam some shrimp. Pour some Kelchner's in a bowl. You have a perfectly nice dinner or a classy way to welcome guests.
(Update: Lotsabogeys comments below that Kelchner's is available at Giant. And Alison C says it is available at Weis. So look at any seafood counter that you visit.)
If you go to Frank's, there are several other great food stops along the U.S. 1 corridor. Check out everything from organic groceries and empanadas to a kitchen supply store and the county's best Middle Eastern grocery.
