How long would this sauce keep in a lidded jar in the refrigerator?
karen.jensen0939m3t4 1w ago
Because of the acid (lime juice, Worcestershire Sauce, hot sauce) plus the salt, it would likely keep for a couple weeks at least. The texture of the tomatoes will likely diminish greatly though and quickly become quite soft in the fridge (within 2-4 hours.) - Steve Murch 1w ago

We tested this recipe with some friends and everyone was in awe with the shrimps and sauce. Very good.

Very good. Even the kids liked them. I added an additional Jalapeno, omited the worchestershire and cut the ketchup in half. They just didn''t seem to fit. I also added some chipotle hot sauce, it added a nice smokey fllavor.
