1 quart strawberries, hulled and halved

2 cloves garlic, minced

1-inch chunk fresh ginger, thinly sliced

½-1 jalapeño pepper, halved (remove seeds, if desired)

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon sugar

1 pound cooked shrimp, shells removed, chilled

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the strawberries, garlic, ginger, jalapeño (more or less, depending on your heat tolerance), salt, pepper, vinegar, lemon juice and sugar. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 20 minutes. Transfer to a blender and purée until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until well chilled.

When the cocktail sauce is chilled, divide it between individual serving bowls or glasses and accompany with shrimp.

Serves six.
