Great Recipe This is a great recipe as is. I've also used it for a crab cake topping (instead of a remoulade) and added a little lemon zest and celery salt Really delicious Pros: light, no mayo

an absolutely fantastic sauce. I have given this recipe to a number of my friends and they all say this is great. It is especially good on wild salmon.
