Q. My husband and I love fish and chips. We think the Brick Store Pub in Decatur has the best. We especially love the remoulade sauce they serve with the fish and chips. Can you help us with the recipe? Looking forward to your help. Thanks.

A. The Brick Store Pub sent its recipe for the quantity made at the restaurant, starting with 2 gallons of mayonnaise. We’ve cut it down to make about 3 cups of sauce; so if it tastes just a little different, that may be why. We hear pub patrons use it as a dipping sauce for all things fried. Remoulade is one of the classic sauces, and this Louisiana-hued version would make a great dressing for cold shrimp salad. It’s got lots of heat from the mustards, cayenne, horseradish and Tabasco, so keep that in mind when serving.
