Broiled Shrimp with Buttermilk Rémoulade

Active time 15 mins
Total time 15 mins

Serves 8 (serving size: 3 shrimp and about 2 tbsp. sauce)

If preboiled shrimp and cocktail sauce is a standard starter at your holiday gathering, try these quick broiled shrimp with a spicy remoulade dipping sauce—a homemade alternative that takes minutes, is much more delicious, and much lower in sodium. Like cocktail sauce, the remoulade gets a pungent kick from prepared horseradish. For a different type of heat, omit the horseradish and try Creole mustard, a stone-ground mustard with a little extra vinegar punch. We leave the tails on the shrimp for easy handling. Keep a small bowl next to the serving plate for discarded shrimp tails.


  • 1/2 cup canola mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup 2% plain reduced-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fat-free buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons prepared white horseradish
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons drained and chopped capers
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails on)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
