Dill Sauce Tips and Variations:

  • This sauce isn’t just for seafood. It’s a great dipping sauce for Oven Baked Home Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, Crab Cakes, or as a spread on fish sandwiches.
  • We used Duke’s Mayonnaise, but use your favorite brand to get the best flavor.
  • We don’t recommend using Miracle Whip as a substitute for the mayonnaise.
  • Fresh dill is the way to go for this recipe.
  • Refrigerate the sauce as quickly as possible to keep the mayo fresh.


Refrigerator: Dill sauce should be stored covered in the refrigerator and discarded after 5 days.

Freezer: We do not recommend freezing this sauce.
