Preheat oven to 375F and crisp up cakes for about 18 minutes till golden brown and internal temperature has reached 74C. Dollop remoulade either on the bottom of your plate or top of the cakes, dot pickled salad on top of cakes – start with a small amount depending on how much you like pickled vegetables. Sprinkle with crispy shallots for added savory crunch.
