The same day that we made cheese, I discovered how to make tartar sauce- I wanted some to go with the fish that I had purchased.
Tartar sauce is, at best, ridiculously easy to make, and it was surprising to see that all I needed was…
- lemon juice
- pickle relish
Likely, you need something like 2 Tablespoons of mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon of mustard, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon of pickle relish.
You stir it all together, and there you have it- fresh tartar sauce, delicious, simple, and extremely cost-effective.
So next time you have a fish fry or a seafood party, make your own tartar sauce!
Now, on to discovering how to make the cocktail sauce!
I want to experiment with Miracle Whip instead of mayo to see how that turns out. Also, be careful with the lemon juice- too much lemon juice will tell its secret in the tartar sauce, and that takes away from what you want to make. At the same time, play around with proportions, and you can even add other ingredients to the mix to give small hints of flavors that can remain your own personal secret ingredient.
