What is Remoulade Sauce?
Remoulade is a European cold sauce, which is based on mayonnaise. Remoulade is French invention and it comes from the French word rémoulade. It was first mentioned around the 1600s, where a French chef made a sauce containing mustard, capers and onion. It is most often of a yellowish color. Sometimes the sauce may be flavored with curry and even sometimes added with pickles or piccalilli. It may also contain horseradish, paprika, anchovies, capers or a mix. It was originally to be served together with meats. Today it is mostly served as a condiment or as a dipping sauce. Several countries have adopted and developed their own versions.

Danish Remoulade History
It was first in the 1800s that the version of Danish remoulade was invented. The Danish remoulade is a more sweet version. It has a sweet-sour mild taste with a yellowish color. It quickly became the most dominant version in Denmark, while other countries kept their own versions. Danish remoulade is the most consumed version in Denmark, Sweden and Northern Germany. Despite not being a Danish invention it is seen by many to be very big part of Danish food culture. It is especially closely associated to the Danish street food icon the Sausage Wagon “Pølsevogn” (Hotdog stand) and as a dipping sauce for French fries. But it is actually a relatively new thing in Denmark. As late as 1964, a refusal by the Danish government was made to serve Danish remoulade at Hotdog stands “Pølsevogne” (Sausage Wagons). The silly reasoning behind the refusal was that the Ministry of Commerce did not categorize and approve it as an accessory for hot sausages. The Danes have developed a fondness with the Danish remoulade version and it has become huge part of the Danish food culture and many still believes it is a Danish invention – because it is so ingrained in the Danish Cuisine. The Danish remoulade sauce is mostly used for Open faced sandwiches, fried fish, French fries, fish cakes and of course hotdogs.
