Grilled Shrimp Remoulade

From: EatingWell Magazine, June/July 2005

An updated and untraditional rémoulade makes a tangy sauce for these spice-rubbed shrimp. While this is a warm-weather favorite on the grill, you can also cook the shrimp under a preheated broiler. Cook shrimp on a lightly sprayed broiler rack, about 4 inches from the heat, for a winter warmer any night of the week.

  • Remoulade Sauce
  • ¼ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon hot sauce, such as
  • Shrimp
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 36 raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 1 pound)


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. To prepare sauce: Mix mayonnaise, yogurt, parsley, mustard and hot sauce in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Preheat grill to high.
  3. To prepare shrimp: Combine cumin, paprika, coriander, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat with spices. Thread the shrimp onto four 12-inch skewers. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the shrimp until just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Carefully remove the shrimp from the skewers. Serve immediately, with the sauce.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover the rémoulade sauce and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
  • Equipment: Four 12-inch skewers (see Tip, below)
  • Grilling tip: When using wooden skewers, wrap the exposed parts with foil to keep them from burning. (Contrary to conventional wisdom, soaking skewers in water doesn't protect them.)
  • To oil a grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

Tasty! Sauce is kinda superfluous, and there are other versions of the sauce you might want to try out instead.

This had great flavor and I loved the sauce. My husband loved the Shrimp but hated the sauce. So maybe just on the side next time.

Great!!!!! Loved this. I sprayed the shrimp w/olive oil before putting in the spice rub. Also used Greek yogurt in dip. All was great. Pros: Easy Cons: None
