A Saucy Bit of Remoulade

Can I buy you a fish sandwich

Can I buy you a fish sandwich

This is an easy sauce to make and goes great over all sorts of fish — especially leftover fried catfish — with fresh tomatoes and shredded lettuce on a whole-wheat hoagie roll. (We’re not posting the recipe for a Po’ Boy, since the catfish was takeout. If fried isn’t your speed perhaps a blackened shrimp sandwich would be up your alley.)

The recipe is my version of Emeril Lagasse‘s.


  • 2 tbsp horseradish
  • 3 tbsp whole grain spicy brown mustard
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups roughly chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 large cloves garlic roughly chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp cayenne hot sauce
  • Salt/pepper

Blend everything together until smooth in a blender. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately or refrigerate for up to a week.

    Mmmmmm! My mother made a tamer version that included capers – I think I’d like this just fine! And, yes, why yes you can (buy me a fish sandwich), any time! Please!! πŸ˜‰

  2. Have you tried remoulade sauce on chips or fries? It’s fantastic and your version would be awesome. I’m finishing up my first batch of your bourbon cherries today and will link back in my next post. Can’t wait to try one. πŸ™‚
