Updated Sep 27, 2007

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds (about 60) cooked peeled deveined medium shrimp, thawed if frozen
  • 1/2 cup tomato juice
  • 1/4 cup vodka, if desired
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 cup cocktail sauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green olives

Steps

  • 1
    Arrange shrimp in single layer in rectangular glass or plastic dish, 11x7x1 1/2 inches.
  • 2
    Heat tomato juice, vodka and pepper sauce to boiling in 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in sugar; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in celery salt and parsley; pour over shrimp. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours.
  • 3
    Mix cocktail sauce and olives; pour into small serving bowl. Remove shrimp from marinade with slotted spoon; arrange on serving platter. Serve shrimp with sauce and toothpicks.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Don’t marinate the shrimp more than 3 hours; a longer time in the tomato juice will toughen the shrimp.
  • tip 2
    Serve shrimp in a divided glass bowl or cylinder with cocktail sauce. Serve condiments such as celery sticks, lime wedges, pickles and olives in separate low-ball glasses. Place the bowl and glasses on a large tray.
  • tip 3
    Place shrimp in an oversized martini glass (about 12 to 14 inches in diameter). Pour cocktail sauce mixture over shrimp, and garnish like a Bloody Mary with a skewer of colossal olives, a small lime wedges and a celery stick.
