You asked! Shark Tank Recipe for Fish Fixe cocktail sauce.

As many of you know, Fish Fixe appeared on Shark Tank in November of 2021.  While we went into Shark Tank preparing to hook the judges with our seafood delivery service  and it’s simplicity, what took center stage (for the aired version of the show) was the dipping sauce for our shrimp.  We never could have forecasted that the judges would love Melissa’s sauce so much, and the show’s narrative would highlight that. 

Despite the judges being sidetracked by the sauce, Lori Greiner and Kevin O’Leary quickly saw an opportunity to invest in a direct-to-consumer seafood business with two women entrepreneurs at the helm.  By show’s end, Lori reeled in the investment deal, and Fish Fixe happily welcomed her into the business. 


After the show aired, hundreds of people inquired about the sauce,  where the sauce could be purchased, if the sauce was included with the seafood and what the ingredients were.  We were blown away.  The power of a positive review is real. 


So without further adieu, here is the recipe for The Shark Tank Recipe!


  • ½ c ketchup 
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice 
  • ½ tbsp minced garlic 
  • 1 tbsp horseradish 
  • ½ tbsp creole mustard 
  • Black pepper

If you’d like to re-create the entire dish from Shark Tank, simply follow the Poached Shrimp recipe below.  Your poached shrimp and dipping sauce will be ready within minutes. 



  • You will need (2) 6 oz portions of Fish Fixe Shrimp (thawed but still very cold shrimp)
  • 32 oz water
  • 6 oz. lager beer (not necessary but adds great flavor)
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Mix all the ingredients together for The Shark Tank Sauce
  2. Thaw the Fish Fixe Shrimp according to the package instructions
  3. Drop cold shrimp into boiling water then turn off heat
  4. Soak 3-4 minutes.  The shrimp should rise to the top when they are cooked through (no longer translucent)
  5. Drop them into an ice bath to stop cooking for a minute or two
  6. Once they have cooled to the touch, plate them with the dipping sauce and you have a delicious appetizer
