With Bev still in Florida, it is my opportunity to try out some dishes I know she’s not particularly fond of. While on our trip to NOLA in early September, we stopped at the Blowfly Inn, in Gulfport, Miss. for lunch and I had Cajun remoulade salad dressing and loved it. Later I got a Cajun remoulade recipe from Lea Ann at Mangos, Chili and Z and made up a batch. It was so flavorful, Bev didn’t care for it, but I’ve been enjoying it, especially as a salad dressing. Lea Ann also sent me a recipe for Shrimp Remoulade and recently, Mary at Deep South Dish posted a similar recipe. Since I had the sauce from Lea Ann, the reminder post from Mary, the shrimp in the freezer, and the absence of the anti-Cajun remoulade person, it sounded like the perfect meal – especially since I could make a single serving meal.
I decided to cut my sauce with a little mayo and made it as I would any other salad topped with meat – add meat atop greens, top with dressing, and mix. I only had the core of some lettuce and have always liked it sliced off in thin pieces. Here it is before and after mixing.
For those of you who are nearer my age, you likely remember getting the Sears Christmas Wishbook in the mail and spending hours leafing through it and doing some serious wishing. Well my copy of Cabela’s Gifts Catelog just came and I had a remotely familiar feeling as I looked through the cooking hardware and camping sections, even though I no longer camp – what fun to look and wish.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
