Lump Crab Salad with White Remoulade Sauce and Cajun Caviar

1 Pound of lump crabmeat

5 ounces of Cajun caviar (or any caviar)

White Remoulade Sauce

3/4 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons chopped capers

2 tablespoons chopped fresh green onion

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon Creole mustard

2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon Creole seasoning

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon celery salt

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl. The remoulade is better if left for a few hours to let the flavors meld. Keep refrigerated.
