What is Remoulade Sauce?
Remoulade sauce is a creamy sauce of French origin. It is similar in appearance to tartar sauce but contains mayonnaise, as well as mustard, herbs, capers, anchovies, and chopped gherkins. It is served chilled as a side to seafood dishes (such as crab cakes) and cold meats.
