Deanie’s Seafood Features Summer Shrimp Recipes


Shrimp Remoulade is a New Orleans tradition, and the combination of chilled shrimp and tangy sauce are perfect as an hors d’oeuvre at a summer barbecue or backyard get-together.  Even though National Shrimp Day was May 9, we’re lucky enough to be in close proximity to the world’s best seafood, and can enjoy gulf shrimp practically year round. We’re keeping the celebration going with shrimp recipes featured every day for the rest of the week!  



The easiest way to prepare shrimp remoulade is to buy already boiled and seasoned shrimp at a local seafood market or grocery store, peel them and whip up a delicious remoulade sauce for dipping. If you’re up for a bit more of a challenge, you can find fresh local shrimp at the market and boil them yourself. The Louisiana Seafood Board offers up their recommended method for boiling shrimp.  See below for how to prepare the remoulade sauce.

  • ¾ cups mayonnaise

  • 4 teaspoons Creole mustard

  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

  • 1 teaspoon horseradish

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together in a food processor or with a whisk and chill until ready to use. This recipe makes about 1 cup. Serve the sauce with the shrimp for dipping, or add shrimp to the Remoulade, place over a bed of lettuce and let chill for an hour before serving. 

If Gulf shrimp are not available in your area, you can order them online from Deanie’s Seafood!  We ship fresh seafood anywhere in the continental United States.
