Shrimp Rémoulade

Rémoulade is a New Orleanian sauce that shares a name, and little else with the French sauce, Remoulade. The Louisianian version is a Creole Mustard based sauce that was used to liven up day old seafood an eggs. Its also good on a cold roast beef sandwich.



The sauce is most commonly used on shrimp though:

For the shrimp. Peel 10 lbs of small to medium sized shrimp. Fill the largest skillet you have with water; to this add salt and a half of a lemon sliced into several thin disks, then bring to a boil. To the boiling water add enough shrimp to fill the pan, but not over crowd the shrimp. Cook the shrimp ~2 min or until pink and tender. Remove and replace the cooked shrimp with more raw shrimp until all shrimp are cooked. Set shrimp on side to cool.
