Tartar Sauce

This is a delightful brightly season version of tartar sauce, perfect for fish & chips, or any seafood. I also love it for dipping fries (chips) or tots. Be sure to serve alongside hot sauce such as Tapatio or Cholula, and fresh lemon wedges so everyone can get the flavor they like best.


  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cabochon pickles (or any dill pickles)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped capers
  • hot sauce to taste (cayenne pepper is a suitable replacement)


  1. Mix all ingredients besides hot sauce in a bowl. Adust to your liking with any additional amounts of each ingredient.
  2. Season to taste with a few drops of Tabasco sauce.
  3. Cover and chill for 1/2 to 1 hour to blend flavors.
