Ok guys, it's a Friday night and I am very hungry, I've looked around in my house, and decided I want to make myself an omlette and shrimp, because both of them are totally amazing.

Now, I am what I would call a pretty good cook, and the omlette will be no problem. I do, however, need some easy dipping sauce for the shrimp. I have looked everywhere and can't find any lemon or lemon juice to make the usual lemon-butter-herb dipping sauce that I love so much. The shrimp will be fried on stovetop in oil, if that limits what sauce will work at all, I've never done much with shrimp before, so idk.

So, I need a good, easy, fast shrimp dipping sauce. GO!

Ketchup + horseraddish = WIN.

Sucks you can't do the butter though. If I were you I'd batter the shrimp, especially if you have some coconut, no sauce needed

1. Melt butter and over medium heat until slighty brown
2. add pepper, spices (cajun seasoning would be ace), diced onions, a wee bit of suger, and some Worcestershire sauce.
3. Add in chicken broth and fish sauce if you'd like.
4. Bring to a rapid boil and immediately reduce heat to simmer.

Well I hate coconut in the first place, but I don't think ketchup and horseraddish would be good with shrimp at all.

This is exactly the type of **** I am looking for, I didn't even think of garlic. Good call man, I will probably do this unless anyone has anything that sounds better?

for my first serious post the ketchup and horseradish is actually quite delicous

Well thats the basic shrimp cocktail sauce you get served anywhere.

And YES to the garlic. Do you have any butter? If so just saute them with garlic and butter.

I have real garlic and butter, as well as an assortment of herbs and spices that I imagine would go great with shrimp.

Also, I've never had shrimp cocktail sauce... hmm

You've never had shrimp cocktail?! God my friend, you're missing out! Make it and try it, you really don't have to much to lose. I'd say one table spoon of horseraddish for every cup of ketsup, more if you like a little more kick. (rought measurements)

And what herbs and spices do you have? How far are you willing to go to prepare them?

I don't, personally, think sea food and egg's go together well. But thats just me. Especially shrimp and the like. The texture seems like it would just be... weird as fuck

I dislike horseraddish, and we don't have any anyway lol. As for herbs and spices, I'm 15 and live at home with my mom, so I'd assume just about everything because we cook a lot of homemade food. I can't really name any unique ones off the top of my head, but we've got a big cabinet full of spices and herbs lol.

EDIT: Yeah the shrimp omlette does actually sound pretty bad, and I would rather not take a long time with this meal, as I am pretty hungry and not picky with how it looks, but I'm willing to take the time to make it taste great.

It'd be like eating a latex glove. Put a bit of oil in when you fry because it lets the butter boil at a higher temperature than butter alone.

WHOA wait, I thought shrimp was boiled in oil, then usually dipped in some other butter/cocktail sauce or something. Are you telling me that I am supposed to cook it in butter? I've only made shrimp once before and can't really remember how I did it.

Enother edit: Yeah A1 steaksauce is probably the greatest thing known to man, but it would be impossible to integrate it into a delicious shrimp/omlette meal.

Heat pan. When hot, add butter and let it melt then add a bit of oil. Then add chopped garlic, then shrimp. Fry until the shrimp change colour and then you're done.

lol


And avoid low smoke point oils like olive oil (Which isnt a great frying oil anyway, imo). And its not the butter boiling, its just the water evaporating and fat melting (Nitpicky i know)

What I say do is make a simple sort of spice rub with some salt, pepper, old bay, and maybe a little paprika or the like. Then fry in a butter/oil mix until GBAD (or however thats gonna cook up to look)

Shrimp can be cooked pretty much any way you want, boiled, fried, broiled, grilled, etc. You'd fry it in the butter, and you can make the sauce out of basically anything aswell.

Ok, so I think I know what I want to do, I'm going to boil the shrimp in a butter/oil mixture with garlic, salt, pepper, and maybe a little oriental seasoning and some other herbs and spices I can find, while I cook my delicious ham and cheese omlette.

Thanks guys

Holy ****, ****ing update:

Ok, so as I was making the shrimp and getting ready to start the omlette, I noticed my mom had picked up a loaf of bread from the store. I then thought to myself "Holy ****, I like PB & J sandwitches more than omlettes."

I then proceded to make myself a sandwitch and ate it before the shrimp was done.
Once the shrimp was done, I tasted one and it was the most delicious thing I have ever eaten in my life. I have an entire bowl full of these shrimp and they're being munched down fast. I'm happy
