  1. Up in the recipe, you list 1-2 teaspoons of prepared horseradish but then down below in the description you say add 1 tablespoon of horseradish and add more if you want it…? Is it teaspoons or tablespoons?

    1. It’s teaspoons. Sorry about that! I’ll make the change right away. I sometimes add up to a full tablespoon (3 teaspoons) if I really want it to have a kick. So it’s really up to you!

  2. Great easy last second recipe. I used 5tbsps of spicy horseradish sauce we like spicy cocktail sauce. Great recipe that is easily acceptable. 🍤🍤😉

  3. Here’s an alternative method , use a cup of ketsup , 1 tablespoon of lime juice , if you dont have horseradish sauce use one teaspoon of very hot Mexican hot sauce and a good splash of Worcesterhire sauce , Blend together and enjoy . Its a different type of hot , but its good.

  4. In the Ingredients it list 1-2 tsp prepared horsradish and in the Instructions it list 1 tablespoon horseradish. Is this correct?
    Thank you

    1. It should be tablespoons, sorry about that. I updated it in the recipe, but you should start with 1 tablespoon and add more if you prefer a little more spice.

  5. The detailed instructions and beautiful accompanying photos make me feel confident that I can recreate this dish at home. I can’t wait to try it out for myself! Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe.
