For those who like a kick of spicy to their foods, sriracha is a great add-in to your regular meals. I’m not a big fan of it, but Justin loves spicy foods. So, this recipe was made with him in mind.

We used sriracha sauce to make a homemade cocktail sauce for the shrimp. Sriracha sauce is a condiment made from chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. Overall, it’s a pretty decent food when it comes to the ingredients. I like cooking with real food.

I didn’t use an overabundance of sriracha because I wanted to still enjoy the sauce. But you can always add more to it if you want a stronger flavor.

For the shrimp, we decided to roast it. It’s one of the easiest, and least messy ways to cook shrimp. It keeps the shrimp soft, but warm. And cooking it in the butter and garlic infuses a good amount of flavors in the shrimp.

Roasted shrimp with sriracha cocktail sauce would make a great appetizer for a party. Or, if you’re like us, it makes a great dinner, too. Pair it with some Cheddar Biscuits and Roasted Asparagus for a full meal.

Leftovers

Keep the sriracha cocktail sauce in its own sealed container in the refrigerator. Since it’s best served cold, you don’t have to do anything to warm it up. Store the roasted shrimp in a different container. Either eat it cold or warm in a pan with the butter until just heated through. You don’t want to overcook the roasted shrimp when reheating.

Roasted Shrimp with Sriracha Cocktail Sauce FAQs

What is sriracha sauce?

Sriracha sauce is a sauce made of chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt.

Where do I find sriracha sauce?

You can find sriracha sauce with other condiments such as chili sauce in your local grocery store. Or, it may be with the Oriental foods.

What size shrimp works best?

When it’s a meal that you are eating the shrimp by hand, I prefer large or even extra large. They are easy to grip.

Why do you cook it with the tail on? Wouldn’t it be easier to remove the shrimp tails before cooking?

When you cook shrimp with the tail on, it helps to make the tail meat more tender. Otherwise, if shrimp is cooked more than just a few minutes, it will become rubbery in texture if the tails are removed prior to cooking.
