We started making our own Tartar Sauce more out of necessity than health. It is one of those condiments that we never seemed to have when we needed. We have three growing boys and they eat their fair share of fish sticks! (Made from Wild Caught Alaskan Fish of course)
This basic tartar sauce recipe is a base. By itself it makes good simple tartar sauce, but if you substitute a couple ingredients you can tweak it for your own taste or the occasion.
Modify this Tartar Sauce Recipe and make it your own!
Want a sweeter tartar sauce? Make the tartar sauce recipe as written and add about a tablespoon of local honey. Give it a taste and adjust from there.
Like a more savory tartar sauce? Use dill pickle relish instead of sweet. You can spice it up with some finely chopped jalapeno’s if you want.
As you can see, there are many possibilities. Let your imagination go wild and create your own tartar sauce recipe. I guarantee that you will like this better than that store bought pre-made, chemical ridden junk you get at the store.
Try to use as many natural organic ingredients as you can. Watch out for high fructose corn syrup in the pickle relish. Follow this recipe and you will see how to make a simple tartar sauce in just minutes from simple ingredients!
The tartar sauce will keep for a week or more in the fridge. (As long as the the mayo is still good for. Label your container with a piece of tape and write the made on date on it)
