5 Best Sauces to Try With Your Seafood

There are several ways to eat and enjoy seafood. The easiest, and cheapest is to make a sauce with ingredients you may already have at home. Here are 5 great sauces every seafood eater must try:

Remoulade Sauce

Remoulade sauce pairs nicely with shrimp. You will need some mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, mustard, and salt to taste. For a nice twist, you can chop long slices of carrots, cucumbers, and radishes, and dip them in the sauce alongside your shrimp.

Hot Sauce

Looking to add some spiciness to your seafood? All you need here is some jalapeño and red bell pepper. These will constitute the spicy ingredients. Then for a balance of sweetness, use light brown sugar, some salt, and crushed garlic.

Tartar Sauce

Tartar sauce is a quick and easy option for fried fish, shrimp, crab cakes, and fish fingers! All you need is some mayonnaise, white vinegar, pickles, mustard, salt and pepper to taste. Whip these up until smooth, and enjoy as a dipping sauce or spread. It can last a few days when stored in your refrigerator.

Herb-infused Butter Sauce

The beauty of this sauce is that you get to add your favorite herbs and spices to make a unique sauce to enjoy. Use melted butter and some parsley, dill, lemon zest, thyme, and salt. The sauce goes nicely on nearly any kind of seafood and can be used as a marinade.

Lemon Sauce

The lemon sauce goes nicely with salmon. To make this sauce, you need some melted butter, flour, milk, salt, and cayenne pepper. Mix these up, and add a few drops of lemon juice to taste. Drizzling this over your salmon will add a nice twist.
