Creamy spicy Remoulade Sauce is the perfect condiment for seafood, meat, and veggies. Use it as a dip on the side or a spread on sandwiches.
All the credit for this recipe goes to my husband, Erik. He dabbles in the kitchen a little from time to time and this Remoulade Sauce is one of best creations. This recipe has a surprising little twist with the addition of sriracha sauce. The sriracha brings a good amount of heat without being too hot.
What is and how to use remoulade sauce
There are countless uses for remoulade sauce. It’s the perfect dip for seafood recipes like my Maryland Crab Cakes, Southern Fried Whiting Fish, and Maryland Steamed Shrimp. Many use it as a spread on po boys and other types of sandwiches. Remoulade is a mayonnaise base spread made with horseradish, pickle, capers, and several herbs and spices. We don’t use horseradish it in this version but it doesn’t diminish the taste at all.
