Prepare Cocktail Sauce. Place cocktail sauce in a martini glass, drinking glass, or any decorating bowl.
Place several fresh shrimp on the rim of the glass with the tails on the outside.
Make one cut in each lemon slice starting at the center and cutting through to the outside. Place a cut lemon slice on each glass where you made the cut so that it stands up. Add a sprig of parsley and serve.
