Sweet & Simple Tartar Sauce Recipe
Recently I reviewed a package of Gluten Free Beer Batter Mix and decided to whip up some Fish N’ Chips to test it. All that’s needed for the batter mix is 4-6 oz. of beer to mix in and you’re good to go…but no plate of Fish N’ Chips is complete without some creamy tartar sauce.
I thought about grabbing some store-bought tartar sauce, but it was packed with oils I wouldn’t typically use and many other preservatives that I could do without. I googled how to make it, and upon discovering how simple it was, I decided to go the homemade route and make everything on my plate from scratch!
I needed only 7 simple ingredients to complete this recipe…plus one bonus one that I have added to the modified recipe below. The ingredients list includes:
– sweet relish
– green onions
– lemon juice
– dijon mustard
– salt + pepper
This recipe literally takes 10 minutes to whip up, and all you need to do is stick it in the fridge to chill before enjoying. You can also pre-refridgerate the ingredients ahead of time so it’s ready to serve immediately once it’s prepared. The only supplies you will need is a small bowl fro mixing and a chopping knife for the green onions.
The Recipe: Creamy Tartar Sauce (GF, DF)
Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and whisk until everything is well mixed. The sweet relish and green onions will create a slightly chunky texture to the dip (which I love!) but if you want it to be perfectly smooth you could always throw it into a blender or food processor. (But then you have more dishes to do!)
1 cup – mayonnaise
1/3 cup – sweet relish
2 T – green onions
1 T – lemon juice
1 tsp – dijon mustard
1/4 tsp – tamari
salt + pepper to taste
(optional) 1-2 oz. of your favorite gluten free beer
Makes roughly 6 servings. You may store the leftover tartar sauce in an air tight container in the refrigerator. Consume within 2-3 days.
