Doner Cocktail Sauce

So it's official that Im hooked on those darn Kebabs. What I really love is the cocktail sauce they put on top of it. It seems to have some ketchup, Mayo and maybe some spices. Delicious to me. Is the sauce something that each stand makes themselves with mayo etc. or is there a brand you can by in the stores. I would love a bottle in the fridge to add to...well......everything.

Re: Doner Cocktail Sauce

Good question.

Actually, my favourite cocktail sauce is the one you get at Sternen at Bellevue (ZH) with the chicken nuggets. I mean it's really good. Give it a go.

I think it's mayo, ketchup, sour cream/cream/yogurt and some condiment such as Aromat or Mirador.

Re: Doner Cocktail Sauce

I make my own at home with a 50/50 mix of mayo and ketchup with a bit of cayanne pepper.

Re: Doner Cocktail Sauce

Indeed, cocktail sauce (traditionally known as Marie Rose) is wonderful stuff. This is what goes into mine:

Mayo
Ketchup
Cayenne Pepper (a nice large pinch)
Worcestershire Sauce (a splash)
Tobasco (a tinkle)
Lemon juice (a squeeze)
Brandy (a generous splash)

Remember, practise safe eating... use a condiment.

Re: Doner Cocktail Sauce

I can't stand European cocktail sauce, but American cocktail sauce is simple and delicious:

2 parts ketchup
1 part grated horseradish
a bit of lemon if you want

It's red, not pink, and we only use it for seafood.

So this is what I was served with my Oysters in NY.

Re: Doner Cocktail Sauce

Actually, what you got in NYC is a mix between those two recipes. A whack of ketchup, a dollop of spicy horseradish, lemon, worcestershesterscheister, and tabasco to taste. Best served with the biggest shrimps you can find.

We generally use bourbon whiskey or Scotch, but Cognac works well too.

Great with meat or fish fondues.

I hope you know what you are eating because not too long ago they did test many Doner Kebab places in the Romandie and the result was and still is just absolutely disgusting to say the least.

-quelle-viande-dans-votre-kebab.

That cocktail sauce is probably also just some cheap stuff even if it tastes nice.

Re: Doner Cocktail Sauce

I even carry a doner card, and still don't know what it entrails.
