Most of us know the secret to amazing homemade cocktail sauce — spike some ketchup with horseradish, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce and you’re good to go.

But for summer, we wanted to update this classic companion to chilled shrimp. So we looked to what was seasonal and decided to try a strawberry-based cocktail sauce. It ended up being a perfect pairing. Like the tomatoes in ketchup, strawberries offer a balance of sweet and acidic. Boost the flavor with garlic, ginger and a jalapeño, and you have a whole lot of deliciousness.
