I’m hoping everyone is having an amazing month so far! October has been a productive one for me, so I’m trying to keep the momentum going! All good things will surround you if you keep your positive vibes going! Stay positive and you will attract positive things! 🙂
With that said, I wanted to share my recipe with you for what I believe, is the best homemade tartar sauce, hands down.
I’m a huge lover of seafood, and I will admit I am one of those people who have to have some seafood with their tartar. (See what I did there?)
I will honestly eat tartar with all seafood. Shrimp, fish, octopus, squid, etc.
The problem is, is that when I’m in a quick pinch, I’ll pick some tartar up at the store while I’m getting my seafood to save some time. What I’ve come to find out, is how disappointing and untartar-like the store bought tartar sauce tastes. It is nothing like the ones you’ll get served in a good seafood restaurant, as they usually make theirs homemade vs buying from a retailer.
What I’m going to show you how to make is going to help you guarantee that you will never be buying over the counter tartar sauce ever again!
Not only is this recipe beyond delicious, but it takes less time to make than it does to heat up a TV dinner!
Most of these ingredients you should already have on hand.
The ingredients are as simple as these:
dill pickle relish
salt and pepper
You can use either dill relish, or sweet relish. If you prefer to use sweet relish, don’t add any stevia. I chose to use dill relish because the sweet relish for the Vlasic brand had high-fructose corn syrup in it. It’s all according to preference.
You can either use bottled lemon juice, or fresh squeezed (about 1 or 2 lemon wedges). If you’re looking to make the sauce even healthier, you can use light or fat free mayo.
Once you’ve combined the mayo, onion powder, garlic powder, stevia, pickle juice and the relish, season it with salt and pepper until it’s seasoned the way you like.
This pairs really well with seafood cakes, such as my salmon/crab cakes recipe. They’re an amazing easy way to feed a crowd, or to serve as an appetizer for friends and family.
The sauce should be good for up to 3-4 weeks in an airtight container, as the vinegar in the pickle juice will help preserve it.
