Rémoulade is a mayonnaise-based sauce of French origin that's often served with seafood. It can contain pickles, anchovies, and capers, and frequently calls for horseradish. It's featured in Louisiana cuisine, and a New Orleans-style rémoulade sometimes contains chopped hard-boiled eggs.
This recipe is an excellent alternative to tartar sauce, as it is very similar but has additional ingredients. It's the classic addition to oyster or shrimp po' boy sandwiches, and it's great with other varieties of fried fish or seafood. Rémoulade makes an excellent burger topping as well and is delicious as a dip for french fries.

This version does not use horseradish, but feel free to add about 1 to 2 tablespoons if you'd like. The chopped cornichon pickles, capers, and mustard add fabulous flavor to the mayonnaise, making it reminiscent of tartar sauce. If you can't find cornichons, use chopped sour or dill pickles, or dill pickle relish.
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped cornichon (or good dill pickle relish)
1 teaspoon capers, finely chopped
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard (or grainy Dijon)
2 teaspoons finely chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 dash hot sauce, or to taste
Kosher salt, to taste
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, chopped cornichon or relish, chopped capers, lemon juice, mustard, parsley, and tarragon.
Taste and add hot sauce and salt, as needed.
Cover and refrigerate the rémoulade sauce until serving time.
Serve and enjoy.
