Here we have a slightly sweet and creamy remoulade sauce made with fresh herbs and a tasty bite of horseradish and spicy mustard. You can prepare it in no time and store it in the refrigerator to compliment many dishes, anything from seafood to vegetables, to salads and even sandwiches. Make up a batch and see how many ways you can add flavor to your meals.
1 cup mayonnaise, store-bought or homemade
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 1/2 teaspoons horseradish
2 1/2 tablespoons Creole Mustard
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 or more tablespoons hot sauce
1 tablespoon relish, sweet
3 celery ribs, cut into large pieces
1/4 cup green onion tops, rough chopped
1 1/2 teaspoon fresh tarragon leaves, rough chopped
1 1/2 teaspoon fresh parsley, rough chopped
3 cloves garlic, cut in two
Zest of 1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Mix all ingredients in a food processor. Process until all ingredients are mixed to a smooth and creamy consistency. Chill for a few hours before serving and store in the refrigerator.
Add more relish to increase the sweetness of the sauce.
The use of fresh parsley and unusual licorice tasting tarragon adds a surprising smoothness to the sauce.
