Easy Homemade Tartar Sauce #Recipe

There have been so many times where I have planned a yummy fish dinner and get it all prepared and then Daddy Digger asks, “Do we have a tartar sauce?” and I’d say, “Crap, no we don’t!” So, I found a great, easy and simple way to make it myself with just a few simple ingredients that your likely to have sitting in your fridge!

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix the mayonnaise and sweet pickle relish in a small bowl. Stir in lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Viola, delicious tartar sauce for your fish or other seafood dishes!

    This makes great tarter sauce! At least…I guess this is the recipe. I have been making my own for so long that I just eyeball it 🙂 Sometimes I add a couple of dashes of hot sauce, but that may be a Louisiana thing.

    This is awesome to me because I just got my daughter to try Tarter sauce and she’s in her 20’s. She loved it but it never failed whenever I made seafood we didn’t have any Tarter sauce in the house. I’ve been planning on finding a recipe for it and here it is. 🙂 Thanks for posting this. It seems so simple and I always have these ingredients in the house. Thanks again.
