Red Lobster Pina Colada Dipping Sauce

This is a delightful, sweet dipping sauce, perfect for shrimp or even chicken nuggets. At Red Lobster, the sauce is served at room temperature with Parrot Bay Rum Shrimp. Our version of this sauce tastes just like the Red Lobster’s Piña Colada Dipping Sauce.

    How much water do u add to the cornstarch

    • Guest

      5 tablespoons, per the ingredient list.

        Janette, I understand why you are asking. In the first half of the directions it tells you to mix the water with the PC mix portion, then again with the cornstarch. When I made it I DID NOT MIX WATER WITH PINA COLADA AND PINEAPPLE PORTION. I only used the 5T for the cornstarch portion. Turned out great. Good luck!

    • Gatita Rabiosa

      You just need a little amount. Just enough to dissolve the corn starch. So around two tablespoons would do.

    I’ve been eating and loving this sauce at Red Lobster for over ten years and always ask for extra whenever I order the Coconut shrimp. Made this recipe tonight and it was RIGHT on the money. Added a bit more pineapple and just a little bit more cornstarch but otherwise it was perfect.

    I use to think or rather guess this was made with plain greek yogurt, crushed pineapple, and sweetened coconut flakes but was wrong wrong wrong.

    I made this sauce this weekend and my family loved it with their shrimp. This was a home run at my house!
