AIP Shrimp Cocktail with Tomato-Less Sauce Recipe

AIP Shrimp Cocktail with Nomato Sauce Recipe #aip

I had to dig deep to come up with a fitting substitute for cocktail sauce that works within the autoimmune protocol, but I’m delighted to share it now! Step your appetizer game up a notch with this AIP shrimp cocktail with tomato-less sauce recipe.

How I Made it AIP-Friendly

It’s not the shrimp that poses a problem for your autoimmune diet, it’s the cocktail sauce, which is typically a blend of ketchup and mayo.  This recipe steers clear of both of these.

Regular ketchup blends tomatoes, a member of the nightshade family that’s unkind to many with autoimmune conditions, and sugar. My ketchup is free of tomatoes, and also sugar-free and easy on your digestion.

Rather, it’s a delicious blend of beet and carrot sauce. If you’re cooking for others, have fun trying to get them to guess the ingredients!

Additional Shrimp Recipes

If you’re a shrimp lover, and particularly if you have access to fresh shrimp, you might be looking to increase your library of AIP-friendly shrimp recipes.

Fortunately, I’ve already compiled some tried-and-tasty shrimp recipes you can add to help you adhere to your autoimmune protocol diet.
