There are probably half a dozen different recipes for tartar sauce just on my block alone. My own starts with a couple of tablespoons of mayonnaise and then includes to taste seasoning salt, dried minced onion, lime juice, and India relish. The latter two are the key. Heinz invented India relish and theirs is still the best by far, but it's hard to find. Amazon will bring some for a price, but you can also chop up sweet gherkins with some of the juice and use that in a pinch. Mix and let it all rest for 20 minutes or so.

Add a batch plus some heavy cream to a package of imitation crab meat to make a cheap but delightful seafood salad. You can also add a bit of ketchup to the above to create a nice 1000 Island-like sauce to slather on cold cut sandwiches. It'll get comments thanks to the distinctive tang of the India relish.

There are other dressings and condiment recipes but they aren't tartar sauce.

That's like saying you want a recipe for guacamole without avocados.
I agree.

Whats the point of tartar sauce without dill pickles.

My recipe is to grate onions and dill pickles into mayo. Simple.

Just try a cup of hellman's mayo (or half mayo and half sour cream), a squeeze of lemon, a few sprinkles of old bay if you care for it. I use an excellent quality tarragon dijon mustard. About a tablespoon is all I use because it is very strong. But, it is a really easy way to make an excellent, normal-tasting tarter sauce for folks that don't like pickles or relish. I just threw it together (in about 2 minutes) one day because I had no pickles. Now, that is the only tarter sauce requested in the house.

Default Tartar Sauce Recipe?

Does anyone have an exellent tartar sauce recipe that they would like to share?

I bought a nice piece of halibut and picked up a small jar of tartar sauce and then spent the afternoon worrying that I was going to ruin my expensive fish with some nasty commercial sauce.

Fortunately, the tartar sauce wasn't awful. I made halibut fish and chips with the gluten-free panko that I have mentioned here recently. It turned out fabulous. I'm going to do it again, but maybe with some better tartar sauce next time.

Mayo
Worchestershire
Relish
Onion (dried works)
Pepper

Works well to make canned tuna salad too.

I have never liked tartar sauce at all, but I do like this one. It's especially good with blackened fish, but can be used on fried, baked, sauteed fish as well. It's adapted from a Walt Disney World Resort chef's recipe. Best to make a day or 2 ahead so flavors can meld.



Roasted garlic tartar sauce


Ingredients
Two heads garlic, unpeeled (you will need 1/2 cup roasted)
1-1/2 cups mayo
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish (you can use dill relish if you prefer)
1 Tbsp very fine dice onion
1 Tbsp very fine dice red bell pepper
1 Tbsp very fine dice green pepper
1 Tbsp whole grain mustard
1 Tbsp white wine
1/8 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Cut the top off of each garlic head, place in a garlic roaster or wrap in aluminum foil. Drizzle some olive oil over each head and seal package. Roast in oven (minimum 350F) until garlic is soft. Let cool and squeeze out softened garlic and mash to a paste like consistency. Combine garlic with remaining ingredients and refrigerate until ready to use.
