I'm not a tartar sauce person, and that's because I never made this recipe before. This recipe is seriously very, very good with the perfect amount of creaminess and bite. I finely chopped a few pickles from a jar (not relish) and added the juice of an actual lemon (not from a bottle) and it was the STAR of a very boring fish and chips meal on a busy weeknight. If you are in a rush, while your fish and chips are in the oven, just make this simple recipe and put the wow factor on for your family on a kid favorite, but with an adult send-off.

My recipe is basically the same except I use dill relish and the addition of a quick squirt of yellow mustard.

I too will never buy tartar sauce again. Can't beat this, it is excellent! I made it with the dill pickles, next time I will use relish just to see the difference. This is definitely a keeper and so fast and easy! I also added some lemon juice as suggested.

Made this tonight and loved it! Made it as recipe says except omitted pepper as I do not like it. Have made my own tartar sauce in the past using a different recipe, but my husband likes this one better! Will definitely make again!

I have been making this for several years, the only difference is, I use sweet pickle relish, we like it better than with the dill pickle.

I have been making my own tarter sauce for 30 plus years. I only use dill pickle or relish. I use Valencia sweet onion or green onion in a pinch. The final ingredient is a Tbs of lemon juice. It is scrumptious with any fish.

I like to grate the onion over the bowl you will be using. That way you get the juices too. The flavor of the onion goes through out the sauce.

Super easy and made with everything I already had on hand. Great with crispy walleye fillets. Definitely a keeper!

So fast and easy! And tastes great! I used dill relish and dried minced onion because that's what I had on hand but still worked fine!
