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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

This is a great tartar sauce recipe for any fish type meal. I love all of the ingredients. I also ended up splitting the sauce in half added about 1 Tbsp of finely diced pickled jalapenos... at a dinner table of 12 the spicy tartar was gone before it made it around the table! Read More

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. Read More
