This incredibly easy home made tartar sauce is a perfect example of home made is better. I mean store bought tartar sauce tastes nothing like home made which just tastes so much more alive. It’s full of easy to find ingredients, includes a little bit of chopping up and mixing and it’s ready to serve! A perfect accompaniment to my oven baked fish fingers!
Nicks favourite thing…
I absolutely adore how easy it is to make tartar sauce at home. It’s almost quicker than trying to open a stubborn jar lid. You just chop up the veggies and mix it with some other ingredients and you have a killer sauce that will elevate anything you serve it with! Veggies, fish or chicken.
What does it taste like?
The sauce is tangy, sweet (if using sweet pickles) and creamy. The perfect accompaniment to anything you can dip into sauce!
What are the ingredients I need?
Sweet pickles – You can use whole pickles or sliced. I prefer the sweet pickles because of the flavor it adds to the sauce, but you can use regular ones in vinegar if you wish. Just leave out the lemon juice.
Dill – finely chop the dill.
Onion – I used a brown onion but white will work too. If you’re not a fan of onion you can leave it out, or add less of it.
Mayonnaise – vegan or full egg mayonnaise will work with this recipe.
Lemon – freshly juiced is better.
Pepper – I used freshly ground black pepper.
Sugar – I used white caster sugar.
How do I make it?
- Simply mix all the ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl and mix!
- Serve with my oven baked fish fingers!
My Top Tips!
Simply add all the ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl. Serve with fish or chicken.
This tartar sauce can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.
Chopping up the veggies
Obviously, we all have preferences when it comes to texture. For me personally, I like my tartar sauce chunky, but how chunky or not chunk it will be depends on how finely you chop your veggies. You can also speed this up by using a food processor and have your sauce ready in mere minutes!
What to serve it with
This will go really well with fish. Can I suggest my oven baked crispy fish fingers? The perfect thing to dip into these! But it also goes well with chicken.
You can use whole pickles or sliced. I prefer the sweet pickles because of the flavor it adds to the sauce, but you can use regular ones in vinegar if you wish. Just leave out the lemon juice.
