1 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more to taste


2 tablespoons prepared horseradish

1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce

For the oysters:

2 dozen oysters


1 box saltine crackers


4 lemons, cut into wedges

1 cup cocktail sauce

Directions

  1. Make the cocktail sauce: In a small bowl, combine ketchup, lemon juice, horseradish, and worcestershire. Set aside.
