This homemade remoulade sauce recipe is so delicious, creamy, and flavorful and it’s the perfect addition to your favorite sea foods, like crab cakes.
Remoulade sauce, oh how I love thee. It’s a sauce that I would eat a lot of in the restaurants, especially when I ordered crab cakes. Thing is, now that I make crab cakes at home, I found that I needed to learn how to make the sauce at home or find one that I loved in the stores.
What exactly is remoulade sauce?
It’s a sauce loved by Southerns and generally served alongside seafood dishes as well as fried dishes. I typically find it paired along my favorite appetizers when we go out to eat.
It’s composed of a few ingredients that usually include mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish, and some form of pickle juice or relish.
Some remoulade sauces tend to be spicy. Mine as written is not. It has tons of Creole flavor but it’s not a spicy dip.
I’m a huge fan of homemade sauces and played around with ingredients until I found a remoulade I fell in love with. The flavor combination is complex, in a good way, resulting in a tangy and bright creamy sauce.
What to serve with the sauce?
- Crab cakes
- Chicken Wings
- Breaded Shrimp
- French fries
You name it. It’ll work. Remoulade sauce will last on your fridge for about a week but in all honesty, it likely won’t last that long.
Hope you enjoy this remoulade sauce as much as we do.
