When you pair sweet, tender wild American Gulf shrimp with a badass remoulade sauce, what can go wrong?
Serve this delightfully spicy cold salad on a soft brioche bun or plop a spoonful on a bed of mixed greens. Perfect for a midweek dinner, lunch, or a weekend brunch.
Tip: To save time, make ahead one day and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Now let’s make some Shrimp Remoulade Sliders.
Shrimp Remoulade Sliders
Serves 4 to 6
1-pound wild American Gulf shrimp, peeled and deveined
Old Bay seasoning
1 cup light mayonnaise
1 celery stalk, minced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons nonpareil capers, rinsed and drained, divided, 1 tablespoon crushed, 1 tablespoon whole
1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
2 teaspoons ketchup
½ teaspoon horseradish
½ teaspoon lemon juice
Dash kosher salt
Dash ground black pepper
Hungarian paprika, garnish
Green onion, greens only, chopped, optional garnish
- Set a steam tray in a large stock pan along with an inch of water and a few heavy shakes of Old Bay.
- Bring the water to a full boil on high heat. Add the shrimp. Cover with a vented lid, reduce the heat slightly to medium-high, and steam for three to four minutes.
- While the shrimp cooks, add ice to a large bowl and fill it with water leaving an inch or so from the top.
- Remove the shrimp from the pan and place it immediately into the ice bath for four to five minutes to stop the cooking process and firm up the shrimp.
- Drain the shrimp and place the shrimp on a few folded paper towels. Pat dry lightly.
- Chop the shrimp into bite-sized pieces and add to a large mixing bowl.
- Add the remaining ingredients, up to the paprika and green onion, to the bowl and stir to combine.
- Slice the buns or fill a bowl with salad greens. Scoop a generous portion onto the buns and/or greens. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika and fresh chopped green onions. Serve immediately.
