This guy is posting on all the cooking boards. Obviously an ad for C&B.


That said, I had a wonderful and similar dish at our local club as a "tower" with a layer of crabmeat added--and of course, homemade remoulade and  whosevers' capers.


GO AWAy with your advertising.  Or come back if you have some really really good SPAM recipes.

Maybe the powers that be can just delete it.  I hate when spammers clutter up the boards.

It's probably an OK recipe. Make your own remoulade. I actually had something similar and delicious with the addition of crab to the "tower" that it was served as.

You realize, of course, that I wouldn't touch a shrimp with a ten foot pole, LOL.

What exactly is a remoulade?

Basically mayonnaise flavored with capers/cornichons, finely minced onion, and some spices.


Much more delicious version of tartar sauce, LOL.

New Orleans Style:


Remoulade Sauce for Shrimp


Chiqui Collier


 


2-3 pounds freshly boiled shrimp, peeled


 1 lemon, juiced 
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup chopped celery heart


1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley


1 large clove garlic, minced
1 heaping tablespoon prepared horseradish
4 heaping tablespoons Creole mustard


2 tablespoons yellow mustard


2 Tablespoons Ketchup


1 teaspoon Kosher Salt


1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


2 tablespoons paprika


3/4 cup olive oil


1/2 cooked lemon reserved from the boiled  shrimp


 


Combine all ingredients EXCEPT the oil in a food processor.  Puree.  With the motor still running, slowly drizzle in the oil.   Pour sauce over boiled, peeled shrimp and chill for at least one hour.  To serve arrange shrimp over finely shredded iceberg lettuce.  Garnish with wedges of hard boiled eggs and lemon slices.  Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Aside from the plug for C&B, the presentation isn't new.  I've had versions of it numerous times and have even served it myself in martini glasses.

You copied this well from the C&B website.

I think it is an ad for C&B, pure and simple.
