I have never really been a fan of tartar sauce. I guess it was the relish that was in it, because I do not like pickeled relish either. I have always wanted to give tartar sauce a chance, so yesterday, after deciding to make fried fish sandwiches for lunch, I said, making my own, should not be too hard...And guess what...it is not hard at all.
I used diced up some hot and spicy Claussen spears. I also diced one regular dill pickle spear and 3 sliced of pickled cucumbers. I had just purchased a McCormick Lemon and Pepper grinder and since I did not have fresh lemons on hand thought this would work. Start off slowly with adding the lemon pepper, a little bit of it goes a long way and you can season it to your liking.
Mix well and you now have a quick and tasty tartar sauce!
*When I fry my fish, I 'double batter'. I coat in the cornmeal mix, dip in milk or water, then back into the cornmeal before frying. It makes it extra crispy.
