    Remoulade

    Cajun remoulade is a zesty mayonnaise-based Louisiana-style sauce that is excellent used when dipping in things like shrimp or chicken.  It’s also excellent to spread on a sandwich or even as a salad dressing.  The term “remoulade” has expanded to be a myriad of different things, but classic remoulade sauce was created in France and consists of tartar sauce and finely minced anchovies that is then mixed in.  This is the creole-Cajun version of that classic sauce.

    chef notes + tips

    • Use raw prepared horseradish, do not use creamy horseradish sauce.
    • You can substitute out the garlic with garlic powder or granules.
    • Any mustard ground from whole seeds will do, but if you can find creole mustard then all the better.
    • Feel free to use any Cajun seasoning blend.  I used my homemade blend from my jambalaya recipe.
