Lime Kissed Shrimp & Horseradish Cocktail Sauce

Tired, Hungry, Quick and Tasty - Describes this quick and easy late afternoon snack that packs a punch of flavor!  There are only about 6 calories in a piece of medium size shrimp.  So a pound of 16/18 ct size shrimp is only about 108 calories.  Since I used a ketchup sweetened with agave nectar it was only 20 calories per tablespoon.  So this snack was under 200 calories.  

Last night I pulled out some shrimp in freezer and left in the fridge to thaw.  So today when I got home from work I wanted something to eat to hold me over till dinner and thought I would just quick cook the shrimp and whip up a horseradish sauce.

I used an agave nectar sweetened organic ketchup as my base and then zest it up with some extra seasonings. 

I can control the ingredients and it was the best cocktail I think I've ever made.  Plus the lime on the shrimp with Himalayan pink sea salt and fresh cilantro take it up a notch.  I thought it was better than old bay boiled shrimp!
