This recipe for remoulade sauce is so easy to throw together! It's as simple as just adding all of the ingredients to a bowl, mixing them together, and it's DONE! It tastes complex, with flavors from the garlic, green onions, lemon, Worcestershire sauce and dill pickle relish really shining though the creamy mayonnaise. You could serve it immediately, but it gets better if you let it sit in the fridge for an hour so the flavors can marry.
This Louisiana remoulade sauce recipe will really quickly become one of your family favorites for sure, as it goes with almost anything and is much more exciting than plain mayo.
Remoulade Sauce Ingredients
- Mayonnaise: Mayonnaise is a blank canvas for many sauces and is also the base of this remoulade sauce recipe. It adds creaminess and richness.
- Seasoning: For seasoning, I used creole seasoning which is a combination of onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil, thyme, black pepper, white pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika and salt, and sometimes cayenne or paprika as well. I also added extra salt and black pepper to really bring the flavors out.
- Spice: Smoked paprika adds a delicious and almost sweet smokiness to the remoulade sauce. It is addictive!
- Dijon mustard and prepared horseradish: Horseradish has a strong, spicy, peppery taste and a little goes a long way. Mustard also adds an extra peppery taste, but not as much heat. Feel free to add extra horseradish if you like that peppery heat!
- Relish: I love dill pickles on sandwiches and dill pickle relish takes this sauce to another level. You could use sweet pickle relish if you prefer.
- Hot sauce: You can add even more hot sauce if you like it spicy!
- Fresh herbs: Fresh, minced garlic and finely chopped green onions pack in the flavor of this remoulade! SO delicious!
- Lemon: Lemon juice brings a brightness to the remoulade sauce, and balances out the other flavors.
- Worcestershire sauce: Like the lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce helps to balance everything out.
