Word (and recipe) Wednesday: "Remoulade"

Today you get both a word, and a delicious recipe!  The word of the day is remoulade.  Remoulade is a creamy French sauce popular in many countries.  Here in America, Cajun remoulade sauce is a flavorful, spicy condiment perfect for any kind of seafood.  We here at the Lonely Alchemist love our remoulade on halibut or crabcakes (or shrimp, or po boys, or salmon, or steak, or french fries, or mussels, or scallops, etc... yummm), and encase you are feeling adventurous in the kitchen this holiday season, here's our favorite recipe for remoulade to spice up your December cuisine:

~1 cup mayonnaise (or if you are terrified of mayo, like the Alchemist is, you can use plain non-fat yoghurt mixed with sour cream, which will give the sauce a more sour flavor)
~1/2 cup Dijon or Creole mustard (none of that cheap bright yellow stuff)
~1 tsp dill pickle juice
~1 tsp cayenne pepper (or more, if you like it spicy!)
~1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
~2 tbsp sweet onion, chopped
~2 tsp lemon juice

Mix it all together and serve on top of your favorite seafood!  Garnish with capers and lemon zest for a sophisticated dinner.
