Tartar Sauce with Dill and Capers.....

You've made this delicious fish cake or salmon filet and all you have is this store bought sweet tartar sauce. Do you really want to put sweet on fish? I prefer a more savory sauce. Tartar sauce is so easy to make; I have never figured out why people buy it ready made.

Tartar Dill Caper Sauce
1 Tbsp capers, drained & chopped
1/2 tsp caper brine from jar
2 Tbsp dill pickles, chopped
1 Tbsp fresh dill, roughly chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
Mix all ingredients and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

For a more traditional sauce you can give this one a try.

Tartar Sauce 1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dill pickle relish
1 tablespoon onion, chopped fine
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon dry dill (adjust for your tastes)
In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, relish and minced onion.
Stir in lemon juice and dill.
If desired, season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

Till next time......
