Where can I buy jars of shrimp cocktail?!


Where can I buy jars of shrimp cocktail?

I used to buy small jars of shrimp cocktail at my local grocery store and they were GREAT for a low-fat, healthy, mid-afternoon snack. I haven't seen them around in years now! Does anyone know what I'm talking about or know of a brand that I can research?

I still see them in the seafood/deli section of our grocery store. have you asked at your store? they were my brother's favorite.

I would try Wal-Mart.. they have everything lol

I don't know

heinz at the grocery store, look by the dressings, mayo, mustard, etc. there are several brands
sorry, i missread, i was thinking cocktail sause. i know what you are talking about tho, ask the seafood person

i really dont know

Those little ones that you can make juice glasses out of after eating the shrimp? I don't know but those shrimp are pretty bad. You eat them and they crunch. Stick with prawns or other big shrimps.

at your local super market...in the seafood refrigerated section.



uuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmm, at the store? ;)

I buy them at Kroger's. They are in about an 8 once jar.

your regular grocery store . I know kraft makes one . Or maybe just make your own here is a recipe for that .


32 shell-on (21 to 25 count) tiger shrimp
For the brine:
1/4 cup kosher salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 cups ice
For the cocktail sauce:
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup prepared chili sauce
4 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon sugar
Few grinds fresh black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
Sprinkle Old Bay seasoning

Using a pair of scissors or a serrated knife, make an incision down the backside of the shrimp, following the intestinal track. Eviscerate shrimp and rinse under cool water leaving shells intact.
Place cleaned shrimp into a bowl with brine and refrigerate mixture for 20 to 25 minutes. While shrimp are brining, place tomatoes, chili sauce, horseradish, sugar, pepper, and salt in food processor and blend until smooth. Refrigerate cocktail sauce until ready to serve.
Place a baking sheet or broiler pan under oven broiler and preheat for 5 minutes. Remove shrimp from brine and drain thoroughly. Rinse the shrimp under cold water and dry on paper towels. In a large bowl, toss shrimp with olive oil and sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning, if desired.
Place shrimp onto a sizzling sheet pan and return to broiler immediately. After 2 minutes, turn the shrimp with a pair of tongs. Return the shrimp to broiler for 1 minute. Transfer to a cold cookie sheet. Refrigerate immediately.
Once shrimp have chilled, arrange with cocktail sauce in a martini glass or as desired.

dude, do more research on nutrition

shrimp is not healthy

it has *hitloads of cholesterol

I eat it anyway though

I remember those hour glass shaped jars and they were kept in the seafood section. Come to think of it I haven't seen them around in a while. Try asking your grocer to order them.

maybe at trader joe's?

I remember those. They had a metal top that you had to pop off. I haven't seen them in years. Now most places sell those shrimp rings. They're usually about $4 for a small one. They have a tub of cocktail sauce in the center for dipping.


Ditto..I would start at any package store(WalMart,Sam's,CostCo,BJ'... etc) They should have what you need. Also if you know someone who is an independent food distributor, they can point you in the right direction as far as a specific brand and even order it for you.

Food city, Food world, your local IGA or wal-mart
