Exactly what is Remoulade Sauce?
Let’s cut right to the chase… There are a million ways to make remoulade sauce. The only constant is that there is mayonnaise, mustard, parsley, and hot sauce in basically every version.
From there, you can add (or not) pickles or capers, green onions, lemon juice or vinegar, cayenne or horseradish, paprika, garlic, worcestershire… it really just depends on your taste!
What do you eat it with?
Most recently I served it on these oyster po’boys, but it’s also great on crab cakes, fried green tomatoes, fried squash, and homemade french fries! Make this remoulade sauce ahead of time because the longer it sits, the better it gets… let it sit for at least an hour before serving. Overnight is even better.
Love all Cajun and Creole foods like we do? We were able to get the Jambalaya Recipe from the famous New Orleans restaurant, Mother’s, and they graciously allowed us to share. This is one you’ll want to make on a weekend. It takes a while, but is well worth it.
