This recipe is alright, its gives a start to making the sauce and I found it useful. Do not use "Miracle Whip" use best foods and I used more paprika twice as much as stated and like wise with the other ingrediants to my liking especially the butter. Do not use too much vinegar ! Please let me know if this helps.


It is clear that there are several varieties of shrimp sauce. I found this recipe to be a great salad or cold shrimp dressing. For those looking for a more mellow shrimp sauce - here it is. 4 cups of mayonaise 16 oz. can peaches in heavy syrup 2 tbls. honey 1 tbls. paprika 1 tbls. soy sauce Put in blender and mix well.


I've made this sauce a few times actually. I went to Poland to study for 6 months and I was missing japanese food with the shrimp seafood sauce. Found this recipe and was so excited! This recipe is not bad, not exactly restaurant-style, but almost close. The portions are not right or something is missing. I can't figure it out yet. Me and my roomate agreed that it was a bit tangy (she wouldn't have it) but my husband absolutly loves this sauce and begs me to make it occasionally. I think if you add a little less rice vinegar (like 2 tblspns) and use sweet paprika it tastes better. Just adjust the portions and it will come out the way you want it.
