Remoulade is a staple French sauce. However, Louisiana has its own twist to the classic remoulade. Pretty much everywhere in New Orleans remoulade is a table condiment. Though you’ll find that remoulade varies from restaurant to restaurant – almost everyone has their own secret sauce recipe.

Remoulade sauce goes great on shrimp, po boy, crab cakes, fries and chicken. And hopefully the remoulade you do eat won’t make you sick…bathrooms are hard to come by during Mardi Gras.
