Marie Rose is the classic cocktail sauce used in England. It’s creamy and full of flavor, and it’s a great way to add a twist to your shrimp cocktail. The main ingredients are the mayonnaise and ketchup with a pinch of salt. After that, add the other ingredients if you have them and if you want to go the extra distance.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. ketchup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. hot sauce, like Tabasco (optional)
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)


  1. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, and salt. Taste.
  2. Add any or all of the lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and cayenne pepper. Stir.
