Shrimp cocktails are special! The easiest holiday appetizer you can think of.

They are also a perfect lunch or supper as they are low in calories and fat, high in protein, and you don't even have to cook. When I need a fast supper or lunch, this is what I eat.

My favorite protein is old school fancy.

Arrange poached colossal shrimp over ia bed of crushed ice on a pretty platter with lemon slices and a dish of homemade cocktail sauce - 1/2 cup ketchup, squeeze of a lemon wedge, 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish (buy the kind that's in the cold section near the smoked salmon in grocery store), a couple drops of Worcestershire, couple shakes of Tabasco. Chill.

A lovely nibble with glass of white wine while I cook and we listen to music.
