No fried seafood plate would be complete without a heaping scoop of tartar sauce. This easy, classic recipe starts with store-bought mayonnaise and mixes in briny capers and pickles, scallions, fresh lemon juice, and black pepper. Serve with corn fritters for dipping or on top of a crispy fish cake sandwich.
