A Simple Remoulade Sauce to make you swoon

Felicia shows us how to make a remoulade sauce.

In some parts of the Bayou State, a simple Remoulade sauce is more popular on dining room tables than ketchup or mustard! Remoulade traces its history back to France where the sauce is a bit more yellow in color. In Louisiana, African, Creole and Caribbean influences added all sorts of wonderful goodness to make it the usual pink or brown color.

Try adding your own favorite spices to make your own sauce. Serve with roast beef, fried green tomatoes, seafood and just about anything else. I bet this sauce goes well with this po-boy from New Orleans or with this BBQ Shrimp recipe from renowned chef John Folse.
