Shrimp Remoulade

Updated: May 22, 2021

Inspired by The Flavor of the South cookbook

This is a light and refreshing salad that’s perfect for lunch or a light dinner. I love smoked paprika, but I do recognize that it can overpower a dish. The original recipe calls for 1 tablespoon sweet paprika, but I opted to do half and it was still delicious. The sweetness of the shrimp mixed with the tangy flavors of the vinegar and mustard — and of course, with the hint of smokiness — will satisfty your taste buds. It’s a bold salad for all seasons. I added shrimp to a salad mixture using curly leaf lettuce, radicchio and endive.


  • 1/2 tablespoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 tablespoon sweet paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
