Hi. I live in the south. Has anyone ever been to a catfish restaurant and had a condiment(for lack of a better word) served with hushpuppies that you dip the hushpuppies in. I know that it has onion, bellpepper, sugar, vinegar and water in it. Just don't know what else, if anything, and how to make it. Thanks so much. Jan Bryant Kisner

South Texas Tartar Sauce

This delicious tartar sauce, vegetable dip is similar to that served at the famous King's Inn restaurant on Baffin Bay in South Texas.

I think you're referring to chow chow. You can find it in the grocery store on the aisle with pickles and other condiments. I've never had it on hush puppies but that sounds great.

my bet is on tarter sauce:-)- just sayin-lol- it's kinda like tater salad- everyone makes it just a little different- just read a few recipes & play with it - til you get what you like

'round here we eat chow chow with peas & greens:-)and cornbread of course & a slice of onion
mimosa ain't no PRO

I'm thinking chow chow too. I can see it coming with the hushpuppies, as they are just cornbread.

Google remoulade or comeback sauce. So many different recipes for these. Creamy or not, ketchup or not.
Feb. 24, 2013 3:08 pm
you are right hotgrandma- it kinda depends on where in the south you are- that will define what other seafood you are eating and which sauces-- i love comeback with crabcakes:-)
Feb. 24, 2013 3:10 pm
Interesting, I think we Texans like to think of ourselves as Southern, but I've never even heard of comeback sauce.
Feb. 24, 2013 3:11 pm
it is usedmore around new orleans- but it is some kinda good- not bad to dip a crab leg in if you get some that are not quite sweet enough:-)

Never heard of Comeback Sauce either and further south than New Orleans. . . it seems a lot like rose marie sauce which is a recognized dipping sauce in Europe . . . you say tomatoes, and we say tomatoes.

Nanny I am from New Orleans and have never heard of Comeback sauce but I googled it and it is the same sauce my sis and I would put together when we fried fish. We didnt have a name for it though just called it fish dip :)

Comeback sauce to me is so much like a remoulade, could be rose marie. So many recipes are similar. I had never heard of comeback sauce until served at Morgan Freeman's blues joint near here. I thought this is just remoulade. I read that this started around Jackson MS. Much the same. A tartar sauce with ketchup, a remoulade, so many recipes & names.

thanks for all suggestions. it isn't tartar sauce or chow chow. use these a lot for other things. this has a vinegar, water, water base. looks like a weak italian salad dressing when served. has onion and bell pepper floating in the vinegar, etc. base. thanks so much. will keep looking.
