What is Remoulade Sauce?

Remoulade sauce was invented in France as a condiment originally meant for french fries but has since transformed into different varieties (though you could certainly use this for dipping french fries). This recipe is more like a Louisiana remoulade because of the paprika, cayenne, and mustard. It pairs well with seafood, especially these baked crab cakes, and contains a healthy amount of tang from the lemon juice and a nice hint of spice from the cayenne pepper.

Use this remoulade the following ways:

  • crab cake sauce or po’ boy sauce
  • slather some on fried soft shell crab
  • dip for fried shrimp, crawfish, or calamari

I have made this sauce before for shrimp and crab cakes. It is soooo delicious. It’s all about the sauce! It takes the seafood from good to GREAT!

I would never eat a crab cake without a nice remoulade sauce and this one is perfect! I also like to have it with fried yucca too!
