Thursday’s Side Dish: Remoulade

A tasty alternative to tartar sauce

This dipping sauce exists as the French substitute to tartar sauce that’s more popular in English speaking countries. Remoulade, like tartar sauce, is usually a mayonnaise based sauce that’s tinted yellow or reddish. A dash of curry powder or paprika gives remoulade a spicier flavor twist compared to tartar sauce. Remoulade sauce was only served with meat dishes, but has gradually become a popular condiment for fried seafood. Renditions may vary depending upon region. Some recipes call for chopped pickles, capers, or anchovies. It's very similar to a spicy Thousand Island dressing or special sauce used for THAT famous fast-food burger from the place with the golden arches. Try it as a dipping sauce for french fries!
