Happy Halloween! What’s scarier than sea monsters when your dining aboard? Not much!
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup grated horseradish
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. hot sauce
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Seaweed or Japanese Seaweed salad (optional for decoration)
24 pieces or more of assorted shellfish
(Alaskan, Blue or Stone crab claws, shrimp, whole squid or baby octopus, shell-on mussels, clams, oysters, whole lobster, etc.)
Stir sauce ingredients in a small bowl until mixed well; cover and refrigerate until chilled
(about 2 hours). To serve, lay ice on a shallow serving platter and put strands of seaweed over the ice.
Place the bowl of cocktail sauce in the middle of the platter, and display the shellfish, claws, and tentacles around.
