I’m certain every “authentic” Remoulade Sauce is slightly different.

Mayonnaise is the primary ingredient in this flavorful kicked up condiment. It’s believed that remoulade sauce originated in France and is derived from the word ramolas which means horseradish. One of the key flavor components in this mayonnaise based sauce.

My husband is from New Orleans and he’s certain this Louisiana version pairs perfectly with his favorite Shrimp Po’ Boys.

There is also a French version of remoulade which is very similar but often includes anchovy paste in place of creole mustard.

Comeback Sauce is also a kind of mayonnaise based remoulade but typically includes ketchup in place of hot sauce.

Since we’re talking about sauces – check out these Homemade Fry Sauce recipes. There’s nothing like dunking crispy oven fries into a trio of sauces!

Hurricanes and Po’ Boys

We made this sauce to go with our Crab Cake Balls. Trust me you’ll want to dunk these delightful nuggets into this punchy sauce! We also serve remoulade sauce with our Classic Crab Cakes and Fried Shrimp Po’Boys.
