Fat Tuesday is today the first day of Dining on a Dollar And what better way then to enjoy is with a no cook meal made with my twist on a Remoulade sauce. Lent starting the day after making this is a good dish for abstinence from meat. Then when the days get hot its a cooling, refreshing eats! Enjoy the salad over a beg of greens, stuffed in an avocado or on Muffuletta or Baguette. If you double the dressing add a pound of cook pasta for a delish pasta salad. Try crab meat, or canned salmon or crawfish.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Place all the Remoulade Sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine well. Taste and adjust seasoning to your likings.
  2. Add the shrimp and stir to coat.
  3. Chill for 2 hour for flavors to meld.
  4. Plate over greens, stuff into half an avocado,(my Favorite) or into a Baguette.
  5. Enjoy!
  6. FYI: If you don`t enjoy a chunky salad like sauce by all means blend it for a smooth dressing.

I used with shrimp and flaked crab. I fine chopped everything as directed because they were listed as part of the dressing. The next time I make this I leave the veggies slightly chunky and add with the seafood. I used dill relish & served on leaf lettuce with slices of avocado. The sauce is EXCELLENT and could be used on many things! I think it would even be good as a dipping sauce for crab cakes, salmon patties or on a pasta salad. It's well balanced, was a creative use of contest ingredients so GREAT JOB!

This was a delicious sauce. I used with canned drained chunk salmon as a salad,did not use
any hot sauce since creole seasoning and horseradish provided enough heat. I will marinate
shrimp next time over night.

This was really good and I am learning to appreciate creole flavors more and more. I made this for myself to take to work and happened to have made a muffaletta the day before. I put them together for a photo shoot and then showed my husband how pretty. Well, Mr Anorexia thought it was for him and nearly ate it all up! Thanks for posting.
