This is another family favorite recipe. Family get togethers almost always included this New Orleans classic.  It is a very easy recipe to make.  Everytime I think about this dish, it brings back numerous memories. Try it at your next family get together.  You will be glad you did.  This is another dish (Crab Cakes) that is usually made with Mayonnaise.

Shrimp Remoulade
4 Tablespoons Horseradish Mustard
½ cup Tarragon Vinegar
½ Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
2 Tablespoons Ketchup
½ cup Diced Celery
1 Clove Garlic, crushed

1 Tablespoon Paprika
½ Cup Diced Green Onions
2 pounds Shrimp, medium size, Boiled & Peeled
Mix vinegar, mustard, salt, cayenne pepper, paprika, ketchup, and garlic.  Add oil, beating well.  Add celery and green onions.  Add shrimp and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve on shredded lettuce.

I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
