New Orleans Remoulade Sauce - a Cajun/Creole Condiment - 52 Grilling Time Secret Extras

Pin It Now!

a Remoulade is one of the classic French sauces.  It is more of a savory Aioli, a flavored mayonnaise.

A Creole Remoulade Sauce is similar.  Just add spices.

This really is not complicated.  It is a cup and a half of mayonnaise with flavoring.    It is traditionally used as a condiment with seafood (ever hear of Shrimp Remoulade???).  Take a look at the photos and you can see my Crab Cakes with a Remoulade Sauce.

It's one of those sauces I really should make more often.  I make about a pint at a time and use it in several things.  This batch, in the next few posts you will see I used the flavored mayo to make a Remoulade pimento Cheese dip (which made a heck of an open face Toasted Cheese Sandwich).

Just think whatever you use Mayo for and you will open up a new flavor option for old dishes!

OK... Here's what I did...

Remoulade Sauce

  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Green Onions, white and Green Parts
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 small Jar (About 1/3rd Cup) Capers, with the Brine
  • 1-1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1-2 TBS Cajun Spice Mix
  • 2 TBS Olive Oil
  • Juice and Zest of 1 Lemon
  • 3 TBS Whole Grain Mustard
Cooking Directions
  1. In a Food Processor, combine the Parsley, Green onions, Capers (with Brine), Garlic Slices and Mayonnaise. Process for several pulses, scraping down the sides as needed.
  2. Add the Cajun SPices, Lemon Juice with Zest and Whole Grain Mustard and again process.
  3. With the blades running, drizzle in Olive Oil until you reach desired consistency.
  4. Use as condiment or replace Remoulade Sauce with Mayonnaise in many recipes for a Cajun twist.
  5. And ENJOY!
