Tartar Sauce
1/2 cup Easy
Total: Active:
PREVIOUS: Horseradish Sauce NEXT: Tartar Sauce

Ingredients (6)

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp dried or 1 Tbsp fresh tarragon, finely minced
  • 1 green onion including top, finely minced
  • 1 Tbsp capers, finely minced
  • 1 fresh chile serrano, finely minced (optional)
  • White or rice vinegar, to loosen up sauce and to taste

I was looking for an alternative topping for fish tacos and the occasional seafood steak. This sauce is all about herbs held together with a bare minimum of binder.

Feel free to substitute sour cream or yogurt for the mayo.


  1. 1Mix all ingredients and set aside for two hours to let the flavors develop.
