I have four bottles of cocktail sauce that I purchased at a cheap price. I bought so many because I thought my daughter could use them. I was wrong, she doesn't want them. My husband and I use them when we have shrimp, but that is not that often. I can't return them, I threw away the receipt. Does anyone have any ideas how they can be used? Thank you.

It's a delicious add-in to tuna salad, or as a sauce for any kind of fish.
It is delicious with sausages; makes a nice change from HP or Ketchup.
It's tasty as a stand alone dip for veggies like celery and jicama too. :-)

Mix one bottle with 32 oz of grape jelly, heat slowly over low heat until melted, throw in some cocktail wienies or small meatballs and heat through, great appetizer or party snack.
Place an 8 ounce block of cream cheese on a plate top with cocktail sauce and then place a small can of crab meat on top Serve with your favorite crackers. Always a hit.

I use a can of shrimp, the kind you find next to canned tuna at the grocery store, and add it to a thing of cream cheese. Make it into a ball and spread the cocktail sauce over it. Dip with Ritz crackers, yumminess!
Cocktail sauce is basically ketchup with more spice to it. you can use it for fries or hamburgers, or any kind of fish besides shrimp. My hubby likes it with tilapia!
Add to nacho chips and cheese, warm in microwave or oven.
Add to meatloaf recipes.
Add to cream cheese and make dip.
Make sweet n sour sauce by adding orange marmalade or sweet juices and bake on pork or beef.

I have in my possession 2 bottles of shrimp cocktail sauce, but it will not be used for shrimp nor any other type of seafood. Might any one out there have a suggestion as to how I may use the sauce rather than throw it out? Thanking you in advance for any info you can offer me.
If all else fails, give it to a fish-loving friend, or trade it to her or him for catsup or something you do like. Don't throw it away. Best regards, (06/14/2004)
Cocktail sauce can also be used in homemade salad dressings that call for ketchup. It will just have a bit more zip than usual.
Mix cocktail sauce with shredded cheese, finely chopped onion, green pepper, and a bit of mayo and use as a filling for celery sticks, in dried beef roll-ups, as a spread on tea sandwiches, and in tortilla wraps that you slice into pinwheels for appetizers. (06/14/2004)
