    Does anyone have the recipe for lamaise or La Maise sauce often
    served over chilled shrimp or lobster? I have checked the index of over 35
    cookbooks with no success. Thanks.

    What does Lamaise mean? Or rather, what is it?

    As far as I know it's a cold sauce somewhat like 1000 island

    Not terribly unlike Remoulade Sauce

    LAMAISE SAUCE




    1/2 pt. mayonnaise (Hellmann's)
    1/2 to 3/4 bottle chili sauce
    1/2 med. onion
    5 to 6 sweet pickles
    1/3 green pepper
    2 tbsp. parsley
    1 hard cooked egg
    5 to 6 stuffed green olives
    Grate onion. Finely chopped pickles, green olives, pepper, hard cooked egg and parsley. Put all these ingredients in food processor. Mix above ingredients and refrigerate until ready for use. Great for lump crab meat, or shrimp as an appetizer.

    Thank you for the recipe. I had heard that lamaise contained mayonnaise, catsup and Cognac among other things.
