Perfect Time for Tartar Sauce


You will never see purchased tartar sauce in my fridge or cabinet. It is something that is very quick to make and uses common ingredients. Today March 3rd is tartar sauce day and no better than today to eat some tartar sauce than with you fish for lent. This is special day is scheduled to take place every Friday after Lent begins. 

So why not try your hand at making your own. 

You will need:
mayonnaise                     pickles
pimentos                         parsley
parsley                            pickle juice 
onion 


Add all of the above to the mayo.  Add 1-2 tablespoons of pickle juice.  Season with Creole seasoning if you feel like it.  Mix it all up.


Make this well before you need it...the day before if you can. The flavors really come together over night in the fridge.  Use to dress Fish Po'Boys or as a condiment for fried seafood.

On to the recipe...
* This makes about 1 cup of tartar sauce.
* Ingredient amounts can easily be adjusted to personal tastes (for example, I usually add 3 Tbsp of chopped pickles)
Homemade Tartar Sauce1 cup (good quality) mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip)
2-3 Tbsp finely chopped dill pickles
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp diced pimento
1-2 tsp grated onion (or finely chopped)
1-2 Tbsp pickle juice

(Chopped green onion can be used instead of yellow onion.  Creole seasoning can be added to taste for kicks.)
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour before using.  Overnight is best.
