Author Notes: There used to be a wonderful folksy family-owned restaurant in New Orleans called Uglesich's (closed now, unfortunately). One of their signature dishes was shrimp remoulade served over fried green tomatoes. Creole Remoulade sauce is very different from the traditional French Remoulade, and there are many different versions. Mine is quite tangy--it uses horseradish and more mustard than mayonnaise, and the heat is subtle (but can be amped up with more Tabasco if you prefer). I served this with a steamed artichoke, and it's great with other vegetables or in place of mayonnaise on a sandwich. This is an elegant sauce that can add a lot of flavor to a simple broiled fish, and it's a down-home condiment that's great with french fries or in potato salad. I have changed some of the traditional ingredients—I left out ketchup and made the mustard the main event—so feel free to play around with this to your taste.drbabs
