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?

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.

I love,love,LOVE this sauce! I had homemade Cajun seasoning already on hand, which I used in place of Creole seasoning. And I used dill pickle relish in place of sweet. This made a delicious low carb dipping sauce for cold shrimp. Thank you!

Creole seasoning? What's in it so I don't have to buy this? Will likely never use it, if I need a spices, I add them.Likely I have everything in this mix already.

Hi Rachel, You probably do have all the seasonings needed. I haven't ventured into making my own creole seasoning but this one looks promising. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/38214/creole-seasoning-blend/

I was visiting my sister & we made loaded baked potatoes with smoked brisket, cheese, etc... she had the Louisiana brand Remoulade & we drizzled it on top our brisket loaded potatoes. It was amazing but I live in a rural area and couldn’t find the sauce around here. Quick google search & this recipe was a home run!!! Thank you. Delicious sauce. Try it on brisket. You won’t be sorry.
