Marie Rose sauce (known in some areas as cocktail sauce or seafood sauce) is a British condiment often made from a blend of tomatoes, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and black pepper. A simpler version can be made by merely mixing tomato ketchup with mayonnaise. The sauce, as well as cocktail sauce, were invented in the 1960s by British cook Fanny Cradock.
In the United States, a similar sauce, fry sauce, is sometimes served with french fries. Another similar sauce called Thousand Island dressing is popular in the United States and Canada. The Thousand Island dressing recipe reputedly originated from the Thousand Islands between the state of New York and the province of Ontario. In Argentina, salsa golf is a similar sauce created in the 1920s at a golf course, hence the name.
In Ireland, Marie Rose sauce (Irish: anlann Marie-Rose) refers primarily to just ketchup and mayonnaise, and often salt and pepper. Marie Rose sauce in chip shops is usually known as "burger sauce", though there are many names in use. However, the above British versions are also used in Ireland. The name used is dependent on where it is being served (e.g. chip shop) and what the sauce is being accompanied with (such as chips or salad). More formal recipes may also incorporate ingredients such as horseradish, herbs, and a splash of Irish brandy.
Some restaurants may top or accompany Marie Rose sauce with Irish cheddar cheese.
