Spicy Cajun Remoulade Sauce

August 26, 2010

Author Notes: Most of my favorite homemade condiments have mustard as a key ingredient. Whether I’m using classic French’s® yellow, a spicy brown or a honey-dijon, mustard is my secret ingredient for adding flavor.

This spicy remoulade sauce gets its kick from a combination of spicy brown mustard and prepared horseradish.

In my cookbook Simply Salads, I toss this zesty sauce with crawfish tails for a Cajun twist on a classic Louisiana Shrimp Remoulade.

I also think its delicious drizzled over grilled fish. That’s how I’ll be serving it this Labor Day weekend!
