In the creation of this recipe I spent more time than I am willing to admit, trying to work out if what I’m giving you is a coleslaw or a remoulade. And to be honest, I am none the wiser.
It has cabbage, like a slaw, but also some celeriac, like a remoulade. There’s also parsnip and yoghurt (instead of mayo) which is like neither. I’ve settled with remoulade. Parsnip, cabbage and celeriac remoulade to be exact. Except it’s more of a strange hybrid. A remoulaw, if you will.
But what I can assure you of is that it is SUPER TASTY.
The beautiful thing about this remoulade is it’s versatility. You could swap out parsnip for carrot or cabbage for kale. It also goes well with all sorts. Think pork chops, chicken, burgers or fish. In this recipe I’ve gone for pan-fried trout. Nothing fancy, but that flaky, flavorsome fish is perfect alongside the strong, mustard-y flavors of the remoulade.
Why you should eat this:
- The remoulade is creamy, crunchy and tangy. Great taste and texture – check!
- Lots of raw veggies – meaning a good dose of fibre and nutrients.
- Trout that has been pan-fried to give you crispy skin and the ultimate umami flavour.
- Trout is also an oily fish, which is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids.
- It’s ready just 20 minutes. No joke. Now go, go, go!
What is remoulade?
Remoulade is a mayonnaise based sauce, originating from France. It can be flavoured with a range of different ingredients, such as herbs, anchovies, mustard, horseradish, capers, cornichons and spices such as cayenne and parika.
Celeriac Remoulade is a classic French recipe that mixes a mustard flavoured remoulade sauce with finely chopped celeriac. It is usually served as a salad.

- Heat a frying pan on a medium-high heat with the oil. Season the trout fillets with salt and then add them to the pan, skin side down. Leave undisturbed for 4-5 minutes until the skin is crispy and the edges of the fish are beginning to cook. While the fish is cooking prepare the remoulade.
