Did you know that bottled cocktail sauce can contain as much as six grams of sugar in just one tablespoon? Imagine how much you eat with a few shrimp! This sugar-free shrimp cocktail sauce recipe is a wonderful option for those watching their sugar intake. It can be mixed up in a couple of minutes, and each tablespoon has less than one gram of sugar (from the tomato), and only six calories.

This sugar-free cocktail sauce is a basic recipe that can be altered to taste—for ​example, if you like your cocktail sauce to have a kick, increase the amount of horseradish and hot sauce.


  • 1 cup sugar-free ketchup (for example, Westbrae Natural Unsweetened Ketchup)
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Hot sauce, such as Tabasco, to taste


  1. In a small bowl, mix together all of the ingredients.

  2. Add more horseradish or hot sauce if desired.
