Louisiana-style remoulade, great sauce for po boy sandwiches and crab cakes, or a dip for artichokes or fried green tomatoes!

Remoulade (reh-moo-lahd) may be a classic French sauce, but it is the Louisiana version with which most of us are familiar.

All remoulades are based on either oil or mayonnaise, and most Louisiana remoulades also have mustard, garlic, paprika and Cajun seasonings.

If you do any traveling around Louisiana you'll find that it seems like almost everyone has their own "secret recipe" for this sauce. It's served most often with shrimp and crab cakes, po boy sandwiches and even chicken. It's also awesome as a substitute for ketchup with french fries.

If you don't have any pickle juice on hand, use a little lemon juice or vinegar.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise

  • 1/4 cup mustard (Creole mustard if possible)

  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika

  • 1-2 teaspoons Cajun or Creole seasoning

  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish

  • 1 teaspoon pickle juice (dill or sweet, your preference)

  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (preferably Tabasco)

  • 1 large clove garlic, minced and smashed
