Spicy remoulade sauce is made with mayonnaise, mustard, fresh herbs, and plenty of spices and is great served with fried fish, crab cakes, fried green tomatoes, or po' boy sandwiches.
I've had many remoulade sauces in my day. There are many different varieties but the spicy, tangy, and creamy New Orleans version has to be my favorite. Not only is spicy and delicious but it's perfect to serve with your favorite seafood for Mardi Gras!
Remoulade is one of those sauces that is basically good with all things fried. Having fried green tomatoes? Remoulade. Chicken fingers and fries? Try remoulade sauce. Maryland style crab cakes? Grab the remoulade.
It's really a versatile sauce that is tasty on so many different dishes. It starts with a base of mayonnaise, adds in some mustard, and then the variations go from there.
In this New Orleans Style Remoulade Sauce there is hot sauce, lemon juice, garlic, chives, and paprika. It's basically layers upon layers of goodness mixed together to make one awesome sauce.
One of the great things about Remoulade is that you can add whatever you want as long as the base stays the same. Plus it's easy to whip up, put in a mason jar, and keep in your fridge for a few weeks without going bad. We had this sauce with Fried Green Tomatoes which made a great tomato dish out of this world!
