Tulane Eats! Shrimp Remoulade

During the holiday season, amateur chefs reach for their cookbooks eager to try a hand at new recipes for the family. In this new series — Tulane Eats — short videos guide viewers through the creation of popular southern recipes as they are prepared by the chefs of Tulane University Dining Services.  

Leading today’s demonstration is Scott Goodstal, resident dining executive chef. The dish of the day is shrimp remoulade, a meal in which large chilled shrimp are coated in a savory dressing and served over a bed of greens. Catch the next installment in Tuesday’s New Wave email featuring district executive chef Travis Johnson making sweet potato hash.

Each video is shot in the demonstration kitchen of the Barbara Greenbaum House on the uptown campus with editing and videography by social and digital media coordinator Lesley Simpson and university photographer Sally Asher.
