Danish Remoulade

Different than the rich red remoulade sauces of Spain and France, this Scandinavian version is more like a tartar sauce. It goes exceptionally well with fried or baked fish and can often be found topping a smørrebrød and always on a røde pølser, the famous Danish hot dog.

Danish Remoulade

This sauce is exceptionally easy to make and is delicious on all kinds of seafood and as a part of a traditional smorrebrod. No self respecting polser hot dog would ever, ever be caught without it.
