Tartar Sauce

A delicious homemade Tartar Sauce recipe is so easy to make - and it uses ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. Takes just minutes to prepare!

Did you see our fish & chips recipe yesterday?  Well – we couldn’t share that recipe with you unless we also shared our delicious and easy homemade Tartar Sauce recipe to go along with it!

A delicious homemade tartar sauce is so easy to make – and the best thing is, you probably have most of the ingredients already!

Tartar sauce is a very basic recipe of mayonnaise combined with finely diced dill pickles, red onions, scallions, and capers – and a combination of just those ingredients is delicious and easy.  But our recipe takes things up a notch by adding pickled red onions, Colman’s dry mustard, sriracha (to add a touch of gentle heat), and agave nectar (to sweeten and smooth out the flavors)!

  1. I stumbled across your blog and really like your style of cooking. I make homemade tarter sauce too and I found a copycat Red Lobster version that I use a lot. It’s my favorite tarter sauce of all time. I look forward to more of your recipes!! Terry

  2. We couldn’t postpone making your fish tacos any longer cuz they looked so yummy, so we had them for dinner yesterday. OMG, these tacos are out of this world with that lemon-lime batter. But, what really makes them great is your wonderful Greek yogurt sauce and the pickled red onions. We did not have the pickled beets cuz we thought the pickled beets, coupled with the pickled red onions might overpower the flavor of the fish itself. We don’t have fried foods often, but we definitely will be making these tacos again…and prolly very soon! Btw, I’ve also been eating those delicious pickled onions right out of the jar and have also put them in my salads. Thanks so much.

    • We’re so glad you are enjoying the recipes Fran! (Those fish tacos are one of my favorites too!) Thanks for much for taking the time to write to us! Martha

  3. This sounds amazing! Trying this one for dinner tonight on fish sandwiches with potato wedges!
    Think this recipe freezes well? I don’t think I’ll use the whole recipe! I’m just cooking for two!
