Remoulade

Remoulade is a danish condiment used on hotdogs, open-faced sandwiches, for fried fish and as a dipping sauce for french fries. They also have remoulade in France, but it's not the same semi-sweet sauce.

It is near impossible to find a substitute for remoulade, so most danes import remoulade whenever they visit Denmark.

Here is my take on a homemade Remoulade:

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup creme fraiche or sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons piccalilly
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chives, finly chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 teaspoon sugar
  • white pepper
  • a pinch turmeric (optional)

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients, and put the remoulade in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Season the remoulade with salt, sugar and white pepper.

Enjoy!
