Cajun Remoulade Sauce



This classic Cajun sauce is an essential ingredient in Shrimp Remoulade which appears on almost every New Orleans restaurant menu.There are many variations of the sauce due to the fact that the originator hasnít given out his recipe.To get the original version, you must eat at Arnaudís Restaurant on Bourbon Street.This one, however, is very close to the original and very good.It is also good as a dipping sauce for Natchitoches meat pies and is good in place of mayonnaise on sandwiches.
