  • 1 cup ketchup see note 1
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 teaspoons grated Horseradish see note 2
  • 2-3 dashes Worcestershire Sauce


  • In a medium bowl, combine ketchup, lemon juice, grated horseradish, and Worcestershire Sauce. Mix well. Refrigerate until ready to use. 
  • Serve with poached shrimp, baked fish, add to burgers. Keep well covered in the fridge for up to 1 week.


Note 1: Read labels well if you are following specific diets such as keto, diabetic, etc. Look for sugar-free ketchup for your dietary needs. Recipe nutrients are showing for regular ketchup, not low-sugar ketchup.
Note 2: I use store-bought grated horseradish. Be sure you are using a grated horseradish, not a horseradish cream. The cream is different than grated horseradish.
  • Any nutritional data I provide is an approximation and actual dietary information can vary based on ingredients and portion sizes.
