Nothing goes better with fish and chips than a great dipping sauce. Try our homemade tartar sauce, it’s tangy, tart, and ready in five minutes or less!
Kim really out did herself in the kitchen this weekend. She was quite the busy little bee. She made fish and chips, Alaskan salmon, and a few sauces that were absolutely delicious!
Well, it just so happens, one the sauces she made is our newest recipe. After tasting her homemade tartar sauce, I knew I had to share it with everyone. So, here we are, posting her tart and tangy dipping sauce that’s now one of my personal favorites.
As you can imagine, this offering is super simple to prepare. It uses very few ingredients and comes together in minutes. I hope you like this one as much as I did. Now, let’s get in the kitchen and whip up something tasty!
Homemade Tartar Sauce Directions:
First things first, prep all the ingredients. Chop the dill, juice the lemon, and measure out the mayo, horseradish, relish, pepper, and sugar. Once everything is prepped up, you’re ready for the second step.
Next, in a small to medium sized mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients. That’s right, just toss everything in, grab a fork or whisk, and start mixing. It’s a dipping sauce, after all, there’s not much it.
Last, take a look at the pictures, once your sauce looks like ours, it’s done. See, pretty darn simple. I bet, once you start making this at home, you’ll stop buying the jarred stuff.
Now, we all have our favorite restaurant version, so we don’t expect to replace that one. In closing, Kim and I hope you enjoyed this recipe and wish you all the best 🙂
Homemade Tartar Sauce Tips:
Horseradish isn’t something everyone keeps in their kitchen. If needed, you can use stone ground mustard as a substitute for horseradish. It may not have the same amount of heat, but tartar sauce isn’t usually spicy anyway.
The sugar in the recipe is optional. However, if you want to mimic that iconic restaurant or store bought flavor, then the sugar is needed to add just a touch of sweetness.
You can substitute sweet relish instead of using the dill relish. That’s one way to cut out the sugar in our recipe. Kim used dill because that’s what we had on hand. Hence, the added sugar to our recipe.
