Vermouth-Poached Shrimp with Ginger Remoulade

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN

Jason McCullar reinvents shrimp remoulade, the classic New Orleans cocktail-party dish. Instead of tossing his vermouth-poached shrimp with a mayonnaise dressing, he makes a ginger-spiked dipping sauce.

blog Ingredient Tips from F&W Editors


  1. 4 scallions, chopped
  2. 1/2 cup Heinz Chili Sauce
  3. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  4. 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  5. 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  6. 1 tablespoon Creole or other grainy mustard
  7. 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped
  8. 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  9. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  10. Hot sauce
  11. Salt


  1. 3 cups dry vermouth
  2. 2 1/2 pounds large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  1. PREPARE THE SHRIMP: In a food processor, combine the scallions, Heinz sauce, lemon juice, ginger, mustards, garlic and paprika and process until smooth. With the machine on, gradually pour in the oil and process until blended. Season with hot sauce and salt. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate.
  2. In a large skillet, bring the vermouth to a boil. Add the shrimp and cook over low heat, turning once, until just pink and curled, 8 minutes; drain and let cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate. Serve with the remoulade.
Make Ahead The remoulade can be refrigerated for up to 5 days. The poached shrimp can be refrigerated overnight.
