What is Remoulade Sauce?
Remoulade sauce is a condiment with an origin tracing back to France, though the version we’re most familiar with is best known for its place in classic Louisiana recipe cuisine.
It’s very similar to tartar sauce; however, remoulade sauce is more savory, using dill pickles, whereas tartar sauce tends to be sweeter.
Remoulade sauce was originally created as a condiment to accompany meat but has since evolved into a preferred dipping sauce for seafood.
What is in Sauce Remoulade?
There are many different varieties of remoulade sauce, though most use a mayonnaise base with the addition of herbs, spices, and savory pickles. Some recipes feature ingredients like capers, horseradish, anchovies, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce, while classic Louisiana Remoulade recipes use Cajun spices.
In this remoulade recipe, the ingredients include:
- Creole Mustard (or spicy brown mustard)

Can you freeze Remoulade Sauce?
The quick answer is no.
Mayonnaise doesn’t freeze well, because freezing breaks down the emulsion. When it thaws, it will have a soupy consistency.
You may find recommendations that suggest you can freeze, then re-emulsify remoulade sauce with an immersion blender, but there’s no guarantee that will work. It’s best not to freeze remoulade sauce.
