I started to rate this the first time we had it; it was so good. But I wanted to play with it a bit. This is what I found out: 1) I can't improve it. 2) The capers are a nice touch. 3) I've tried it with and without the egg and cannot tell the difference. And since simpler is better in my kitchen, I usually leave it out. 4) I think salmon has an affinity for dill, so I sub dill relish for the sweet relish with salmon. Delicious that way, too. Many thanks, Diane.
excellent recipe! I've tried nearly ALL tartar sauce recipes, this is the best by far. I've experimented and created my own recipe for tartar sauce, this beats that too.
the egg is a great addition.
that first review is shameful, what? too much flavor? sounds like one of those ketchup only on hot dog people to me. :D
This is absolutely the best tarter saucee I have ever had. The capers and the boiled egg does so much flavor, more than yuo would think. This is a keeper in my household. I've made home made tarter sauce for years, but nothing like this. THANKS!!!
A very tasty tartar sauce. Try a healthy dash of a habanero sauce to give it a nice kick without being too hot. Capers can be salty so be sure to taste before adding any additional salt.
One of the best tartar sauce's I've had. I didn't have any sweet relish, just dill, and I think the sweet would have made it even better!
This is a great accompaniment with fish - my husband loved it & he never eats tarter sauce.
My family and i did this recipe the exact way it was supposed to be made and it came out great! my advice would be to make double because it will go fast!
Very good tartar sauce. I left out the egg, and added a couple more dashes of hot sauce. My friends thoroughly enjoyed it. One suggestion: make it the night before. the flavors meld much better than chilling for 30 minutes.
