Author Notes

I love remoulade sauce with shrimp, crab cakes, oysters and even fish. Thought this time I'd turn shrimp remoulade into a salad. —inpatskitchen

Ingredients
  • For the remoulade
  • 1 cup homemade mayo or a good quality commercial one

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
