Creating the Dutch shrimp cocktail -- 10 minutes

If you're using frozen shrimps, you need to thaw them first and then add them to a sieve. If you're using canned shrimps you also need to add them to sieve so you can rinse them with some water.

Meanwhile create an easy whisky cocktail sauce, you can use our recipe here. Add an extra tablespoon of mascarpone to the sauce for a thicker and richer sauce.

Also add a few drops of tabasco to enhance the flavour of the shrimps.
