Low-FODMAP Shrimp Cocktail

When it comes to a tasty appetizer, you just can’t beat shrimp cocktail. I absolutely love the stuff! So I was a little bit sad when I found out there are, oftentimes, high-FODMAP ingredients in cocktail sauce.

But you know me! Sadness doesn’t stick around long. I made it my mission to figure out a low-FODMAP version, and I did!

One detail to note about this recipe – horseradish is low-FODMAP only up to two tablespoons. Also, this recipe makes about 3/4 cup of cocktail sauce (more than plenty for the two of us), so plan accordingly if you need more or less. Now, here it is, in all its simple and wonderful glory: our low-FODMAP shrimp cocktail recipe!

Utensils/appliances you’ll need:

The Cocktail Sauce

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons Boar’s Head Pub Style Horseradish Sauce (It took me awhile to find a horseradish sauce that didn’t have high-FODMAP ingredients, but per the usual, Boar’s Head met my needs. If you choose a different horseradish, be aware that you’ll need to check ingredients!)
  • 6 tablespoons Fody Low-FODMAP Ketchup (Again with the horseradish high-FODMAP notes, but this time with ketchup!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Dash of salt


  • Combine all ingredients in the small mixing bowl and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve with peeled, ready-to-eat cocktail shrimp.

I told you! This could possibly be the easiest thing I’ve ever made in my life…and so tasty! If you’re looking for a really special meal (like the one we had for our anniversary this year), pair this appetizer with my low-FODMAP crab cakes and a baked potato or side salad.

So much yum, but my tummy CAN stand it!
