New Orleans Remoulade Sauce Recipe

Mayonnaise is the base for this remoulade brimming with fresh herbs and spices.

A bowl of remoulade sauce next to a pile of sliced fried vegetables.

Remoulade originated in France in a combination most closely resembling tarter sauce, bringing together mayonnaise, herbs, pickles, and capers. Of course, in the American spirit, we took this sauce, amped it up, and made it something all our own.

Louisiana remoulade starts with a mayo base as well, but then adds ingredient after ingredient to form a reddish complex sauce that's creamy, tart, and spicy. Traditionally served with seafood—great with shrimp, crab cakes, and fried fish fillets—my absolute favorite thing would be fried dill pickles. Those salty, sour crunchy chips are a perfect pairing in my book.
