What is Southern Remoulade Sauce?

Remoulade sauce is a very flavorful condiment that’s widely used in Southern and Creole cuisines. Known for its zesty and tangy taste with a bit of a spicy kick. It’s like a Southern version of a tartar sauce, but with a unique flavor profile.

Often served with seafood such as fried fish or shrimp, it adds a burst of flavor to sandwiches like po’boys. Some people (like me) even use it as a dipping sauce for fries or as a dressing for salads.
