Or else there's the kikkoman sweet & sour sauce that might be good with it. I'm not sure ranch would be good.

I hate ketchup too, so remove the ketchup from this recipe and replace it with mayonnaise and it's pretty close to a dip I make for similar fried items. Very delicious.

Give the Thai Sweet Chili sauce a try -

You can buy it in pretty much any grocery store. Its reddish-pink in color with chili flakes floating in it. Sweet with a bit of heat.

If you dip in anything other than cocktail sauce with extra horseradish then you're a dip.

I'd alternate between malt vinegar and ranch. Tangy...cool...acid...cool. Works the same as malt vinegar and tartar with fried fish. Amazing flavor really.

if it's coming out of a bottle, I'd just go with ranch.

Thai chili sauce.. you know that stuff with the red floaties in it. It's mostly sweet.

although, I think if I had popcorn shrimp in front of me, I'd either dip them in buffalo sauce or Frank's.
