"Simple tartar sauce for deep fried seafood. It is better if prepared several hours before you will be using it, but it can be used immediately. Store for up to 3 days in the refrigerator."

Absolutely wonderful recipe! I did not have any sweet relish on hand but I did have bread and butter pickles. So I minced a few slices and used them instead. This recipe was so light and fresh tasting. I will NEVER use store bought tartar sauce again. One other thing...you really do need to let it set for awhile. I had to use mine almost immediately and while it was still very good, it definately improved with some time. Try this recipe, you will not be disappointed.

Yum-o...Great basic tartar sauce. I've made it per instructed and with modifications. I prefer to use dehydrated "Real-Lemon" powder instead of lemon juice (it makes it less runny) and I double pickles (at least) but drain them on paper towel first, again so that it is not runny. I have also used horseradish instead of onion which gives it a different, but not unpleasant, taste. Leaving it to marry in the fridge is advised as it really brings the flavors together.

This is really the best tartar sauce....but I skip the optional lemon juice and we squeeze fresh lemon on our fish instead...not everyone likes the lemony taste in tartar sauce. I have enhanced this with a TBS. of ketchup or cocktail sauce and a tsp. of dried dill. This makes a yummy sauce for boiled shrimp or seared scallops.
