The Best Easy Remoulade Sauce for Crab Cakes

From French cuisine to fried American southern staples, a creamy and zesty Remoulade Sauce is a beloved international condiment.

Because of the bright and acidic notes, it is often served with seafood, like crab and Crab Cakes, shrimp and oysters, prepared in any number of ways. Remoulade Sauce also features spicy and flavorful Cajun Seasoning, making it very popular alongside Creole-inspired dishes.

Remoulade can be one of those recipes that people tend to overdo. You will often find recipes with laundry lists of specialty ingredients “needed.” But really, you can make GREAT tasting (in my humble opinion, the BEST tasting) remoulade with just 5 simple ingredients.

Ingredients You Need

Our classic Remoulade Sauce recipe has only 5 ingredients, and can be easily customized to suit your tastes.

Note: The Creole/Cajun seasoning has many of the herbs and spices often added to Remoulade in one power-packed jar. Most of the ingredients in this recipe have ample salt, so it’s best to use low sodium Cajun Seasoning.

If you want the sauce smooth, use pickle juice. It you like a chunky Remoulade, use sweet pickle relish. Feel free to include spicy pickle relish for extra heat.
