Tartar Sauce, or Sauce Tartare as it is also known, is a condiment made of mayonnaise, pickles and herbs. It goes particular well with fried fish and seafood. But it’s also delicious with french fries or in a burger.


Tartar sauce

1 pcs. Shallots

2 tbsp. Capers

3 pcs. Gherkin

1 tbsp. Tarragon

1 tbsp. Chives

1 tbsp. Dill

1 tbsp. Parsley

200 gram Mayonnaise

2 tbsp. Plain yoghurt

0.5 tbsp. Dijon Mustard

Lemon juice from ½ a lemon


Chop vegetables and herbs

Peel the onion and chop it finely, the pieces should be about 1 mm in size.

Chop the capers and gherkins as finely as the onion.

Rinse the herbs and chop them as finely as the other ingredients. This distributes the flavour.

Add it all to a bowl.

Mix the sauce

Add mayonnaise, yoghurt, mustard and lemon juice to the bowl. Mix well.


Instead of 3 gherkins you can use 1 tablespoon of relish or 1-2 pickles.

You can use greek yoghurt instead of mayonnaise.
