Looking for an all-purpose sauce that can be used all over the place? Make some remoulade. Ours has a sweet richness, and its mouthfeel is enhanced thanks to the presence of relish and mustard seeds. It’s creamy, tangy, and sweet with a titch of spice that enlivens things. Remoulade is obviously great paired with shrimp and crab cakes, but it’s also incredible on a roast beef sandwich. When in doubt, serve it with something fried and crunchy.
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons dill pickle relish, drained
1 tablespoon lemon juice
tablespoon coarse-grained mustard
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 teaspoons vinegar-based hot sauce (such as Crystal or Tabasco)
