Shrimp with Remoulade Sauce

Since none of my southern relatives read my blog, I have no fear of being censured in offering you my rather unconventional recipe for remoulade sauce.  I'm afraid that my mother and grandmother might be horrified at my rendering of their "classic" recipe.  I'm pretty sure they'd be even more disturbed to find that I eat catfish and actually like it--a lot!  Sometimes I eat catfish with my remoulade sauce.  Today, we ate shrimp.


Remoulade Sauce:  My mother and grandmother's recipe with a few ingredients omitted.

2 Tbsp sweet pickle juice 
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp Dijon mustard

Mix all together and refrigerate for at least an hour.

We had it on a salad of fresh greens, cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado and boiled shrimp.  Delicious!

ENJOY

  2. I have never heard of remoulade sauce. (I have not yet had the joy of visiting the south.) This looks like a perfect easy summer meal.

    Isn't it funny who reads and who doesn't read our blogs.


    Fondly,

    Now, I am curious as to why your Southern folks did not care for catfish??? It is a Southern staple! LOL!

  5. Our shrimp sauce is mayo and ketchup -- it's the best -- but I will have to try this sometime!

  10. This looks fantastic; one of the best ways to serve cold shrimps. Love that you are sharing your mom's recipe with a few adjustments; I do that too.

  12. Sounds great to me. I know that in "Nawlins" style---there would be lots of hot sauce, chili pepper and maybe even some horseradish. Think I'd like yours more!!!!

    I'm so glad to meet another Jan Karon fan! Do you have her cookbook?

  14. Gosh Bonnie, this dish looks so refreshing! It has been so humid here, a glass of ice tea would go nicely with this dish. I'll be right over!

  17. I have heard of this sauce, but never knew what it really was! It looks so good!! And your plate is so pretty!! But I never eat shellfish, or anything that has it's eyeballs on stalks. But the sauce...yum! Now what CAN I put it on? Would it make a good salad dressing? What about mixing it with tuna for a sandwich? Well, I'm going to copy it, your recipes always come out good when I try them.

  18. That is like I make tarter sauce only I add sweet and dill relish and my dill herb garlic seasoning.

    This looks easy and cool on these hot days.

  19. I love my shrimp and this sounds delicious. I have a couple of different Remoulade sauces that I love. I'll have to give yours a try.

    I had to smile at your comment about your family and your blog. Same here. Go figure.

  23. Well I too have never heard of this sauce but now I have and it looks interesting. I think my husband would enjoy this, and btw he loves catfish!

  24. I've never had remoulade sauce so you can massacre it as much as you want and I'd never know! Sounds good to me!

  25. Sounds yummy (from a southerner herself!) I think it would be good with shrimp or catfish! Carla

  26. Oh, this looks just wonderful. Shrimp is right up there with chocolate at Purple Chocolat Home. Maybe I should change my blog name to Purple Chocolat & Shrimp Home! (na - seems a little "fishy")

  27. I saw your comment on Cathy's Farmer's market post and had to come over and see about this Shrimp Remoulade. I love having your easier recipe. The only one I've ever made was from Chef Paul Prudhomme's cookbook. It's a delicious recipe, but very time consuming to make. I'll give this a try.

  28. now that is about as southern as you can get! Your sauce looks AMAZING and who cares it is unconventional- however, I know how you feel about posting it because my grandmother would freak if she knew the different southern recipes i have tweaked here and there!

  29. You make it just the way I like it, Bonnie. I grew up on catfish and love it. Can't understand why everybody doesn't.

  30. Your version of Remoulade sauce sounds delicious and your shrimp salad looks so crisp and perfect for a summer meal! Shrimp and avocado is so good together, yum!

  31. Wow!!! I love this dish look delicious!! yummy recipe, gloria

  32. Our normal shrimp sauce is Heinz Chili sauce with extra horseradish mixed in so I've never had it with remoulade sauce but it does sound delicious.

    When I used to go fishing with my parents, we'd always throw any catfish back in the water. Those we caught up here had nasty sharp barbs on the side of their faces, though. I've had in since and enjoy it.

  33. I've never heard of that, and while I am not much of a mayo fan, if I made it spicy I would love it!

    Enjoy your weekend - I think it will be hot!

  34. My mother would be horrified!! We ate her shrimp remoulade every Chirstmas...I was the only one in the family who didn't like it. And after she died I was the one who had to make it year after year. (I posted it a while back out of sheer family demand.)
    I really should try yours as it looks so much better than mother's. :)

  35. Ha! Sometime you just gotta do what you gotta do. I have changed many of my mother's dishes too, maybe I'll call it up-dated. This looks fantastic what a great summer dish!

    Your southern relatives don't like catfish? hmmm...
