Tartare Sauce

Tartare Sauce

Sharing is caring!

Tartare or Tartar  is a  cold sauce, typically eaten with fish, consisting of mayonnaise mixed with chopped pickles, capers, etc. which goes well with fish and seafood.

When I made the homemade mayonnaise with olive oil, I had some leftover so I decided to make Tartare Sauce, which I hadn’t made in a long time.  It is very easy to make and delicious to serve with  Fish.

Homemade Tartar Sauce


  • 200 ml homemade mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp capers, drained and chopped
  • 3 tbsp gherkins, drained and chopped
  • 1 small spring onion, finely chopped
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • flaked sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Mix together all of the ingredients in a small bowl and serve straight away or store in the fridge until needed.

Homemade tartar sauce with homemade mayo...who needs the fish, just eat it with a spoon! Your recipe for it with the capers sounds delicious.

My husband loves this, plus it is one of his specialties so he makes it himself. Great idea to use your leftover mayo for tartar sauce, Ivy!
