Best Remoulade Sauce Recipe

My remoulade sauce recipe is truly what inspired the idea behind Easy Sauce Recipes. This incredible sauce has been a hit since I first shared it, and has even saved meals for me in the past.
One year, I accidentally overcooked my roast beef... a prime rib! This Lousiana remoulade saved the day. I whipped it up in no time and served it with the main course, and no one even noticed it was a little overcooked. It was game-changing for me.
What really makes my remoulade sauce the best is its use of dill relish. Dill relish adds the perfect texture by giving the sauce a little bit of crunch, and the flavor from the pickle complements the other remoulade ingredients beautifully.

Creole Sauce FAQs
Remoulade (pronunciation: rey-moo-lahd) sauce is a French condiment common to Creole and Cajun recipes from Louisiana. It is a mildly spicy and creamy sauce recipe that pairs well with an endless variety of meals.
Although remoulade sauce is traditionally a French dish originating from France, it is most well-known in the US for its popularity in Cajun and Creole recipes from Louisiana.
Common remoulade ingredients include mayonnaise, spicy mustard, a mix of Cajun or Creole seasonings, and other additions such as hot sauce and lemon juice. My easy remoulade sauce recipe uses mayonnaise, Creole mustard, lemon juice, Louisiana hot sauce, garlic, black pepper, dill relish, ketchup, and Creole seasoning.
Remoulade sauce can be served as a condiment for everything from beef, pork, fish, seafood, and chicken, to vegetables, hot dogs, french fries, sandwiches, and so much more. It is a truly versatile sauce recipe you can pair with an endless amount of foods.
Homemade remoulade sauce will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator when stored properly in an air-tight container.
Aioli and remoulade both start with mayonnaise, but aioli typically only includes oil and garlic. The most common aioli is simply mayonnaise infused with garlic. Remoulade sauce, however, is a blend of seasonings and sauces including mayonnaise, which makes it more complicated than a simple aioli.
While tartar sauce and remoulade both use mayonnaise as a base, tartar sauce uses more simple ingredients and tends to have a sweeter tang to it than remoulade sauce, which offers more spice and seasoning.
Creole Seasoning vs. Cajun Seasoning
The difference between Creole and Cajun seasoning comes from the level of spices used.
While Cajun and Creole are often used interchangeably to describe seasonings, Cajun seasoning is typically more simple, using garlic powder, black pepper, Cayenne pepper, and onion powder. Creole adds more herbs, such as oregano, thyme, and paprika.
Whether you use Creole seasoning or Cajun seasoning in my Louisiana remoulade sauce is totally up to your preference. You can use whichever you prefer for making either a Cajun Remoulade Sauce or a Creole Remoulade Sauce.
How to Make Remoulade Sauce Spicy
Kick up the spice level of my easy remoulade sauce recipe by adding extra Louisiana hot sauce. Give it 2 to 3 Tablespoons of hot sauce and you will have an amazing spicy remoulade.
How to Store Remoulade Sauce
Store remoulade sauce in an airtight container such as a jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Give it a stir before using it again.
