Shrimp RemouladePosted by in Food
I had heard of Shrimp Remoulade, but never had it, until I ran across it in July Living. Anything that is served cold with a minimum of work is definitely a summer dish I’m interested in! This was incredibly easy – boil and cool some shrimp and mix up the yogurt based dressing which includes ketchup, mustard, capers, garlic, scallion and lemon juice. Add the shrimp, let it sit for half an hour and serve on lettuce. I ended up with more dressing than needed since I left some shrimp plain for Dude Martha, so mine is a bit gloppy looking. It was delicious though. The dressing was cool and creamy but not rich since it is made with Greek yogurt. It had just the right mix of flavors to keep it lively. I loved this and will definitely make it again. It’s a different way to make shrimp, which is always appreciated.

I love cold salad dishes in the summer, too. And this does seem easy enough. It also seems as if it would work with nearly any protein, like chicken.
Yes, I think it would, although I have never heard of chicken remoulade! But I am probably just sheltered and unworldly.
big fan of greek yogurt. do not really like the uniform color of the dish but i bet it tastes good!
It does have flecks of color but they didn’t show up much in the photo. The capers, ketchup and herbs all do add some color. You’re right though – it’s not very colorful. In Martha’s photo they show shrimp with a lot less of the sauce on them.
