A Never Forgotten Secret Southern Sauce

Today we made crawfish n' shrimp cake poorboy sandwiches and topped them with a sauce known only as Never Forgotten Sauce. Found in landlocked areas of the South like Nashville, Memphis and Atlanta it resembles a remoulade in appearance but is different. Remoulades contain, egg, lemon juice and dill. They are more tart than Never Forgotten sauce which is sweet and spicy. It is a great compliment to crawfish, crab cakes, catfish, salmon, veggie burgers, hamburgers, chicken and  ham and cheese sandwiches. Use it as a dipping sauce for fried shrimp(so yummy), fried oysters, even fried potatoes.

People in the South have their own personalized versions of this sauce. Here is mine.

You will need-
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup mayonnaise
2 garlic gloves
5 larger green onions
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 cup  stone ground mustard
1/4 cup hot sweet mustard
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
several dashes hot sauce to taste

Mince the green onions and two cloves of garlic. In a jar add all the ingredients and shake well.
Refrigerate overnight to let the flavors meld. I always keep some on hand as it brings everyday sandwiches up a notch.
Until next time..
