Fish and chips just isn't the same without tartar sauce! Although there are a lot of different recipes out there, tartar sauce is commonly made from mayonnaise, chopped capers and chopped dill pickles. Since there is already dill pickle in the mix I like to add some dill which is of one of my favorite herbs. I like the way that lemon juice really brightens up mayonnaise and it does a great job of it in tartar sauce. When eating fish and chips I like to dip both the fish and the chips into the tartare sauce. Tartar sauce also goes really well with a lot of other seafood dishes. The addition of some tartar sauce makes a quick and tasty fish dish. I also like to add tartar sauce to things like crab cakes or other seafood patties in addition to serving it on the side or on top.
