Way down yonder in New Orleans! I simply love this dressing. I make it by the gallon, especially in the Spring and Summer months. There is a story here. When I turned 18, my mother took me on another trip to the Crescent City. We started out having about ten dozen oysters on the half shell before switching to the Shrimp Remoulade. I was hooked. After that, we proceeded to Pat O’Brians where I got we bit tipsy before heading on to Pete Fountains Club on Bourbon Street. Pete sang Happy Birthday to me and I was beside myself. I later worked with Pete and Al Hirt as a clarinetist. What a great trip!

We gonna break this down! First off, I make my own mayonnaise. Take  1 large egg at room temperature

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon red or white wine vinegar

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Put all that into a blender and you have bout one cup of fresh mayonnaise. Den, you gonna put the rest in a blender or food processor and mix it al together. What comes out is a fantastic dressing for salads, shrimp, lobster or crawfish tails. Enjoy!
