    Linorama's Note:

    This is a spicy, exciting change to traditional shrimp cocktail sauce. It's fun to watch people try it for the first time. :-) Cook time includes cooling time.

      I've always wondered what was in bottled commercial Chili sauce! I know the intent was to add this to Chili sauce, but I didn't have any, so improvised with catsup. I made this paste, then added 1 teaspoon of this paste to 1/4 cup catsup to use as a cocktail sauce for a shrimp cocktail. Bingo....the closest thing I've ever found to substitute for Chili Sauce, although with a little more bite which we prefer. For the second try, I made sauce of 1/4 tsp of African Red paste, 1/4 cup catsup, 1/2 tsp Louisiana Hot Sauce, and 1-2 tsp prepared horseracish. The horseradish made a wonderful seafood sauce with a kick! The only problem I had with recipe was "needing to add twice the amount of red wine to moisten the spices into a paste". Linorama, thanks for helping me create a copy-cat Chili sauce. This is much cheaper, a little hotter, and delicious.
