I love to eat fish and seafood, but it's just not the same without butter. Tartar sauce is a great dairy-free way to add fat and flavor to seafood. It whips up in minutes and is so versatile!
My recipe is super simple. You can add all kinds of stuff into tartar sauce, but I like to keep it simple and easy. Make sure you use a good quality mayonnaise without industrial seed oils or make your own to avoid inflammation.
If you want to play with different herbs, spices, citrus, or different kinds of mustard, you can really get creative. Depending on what I'm serving it with, I love to add horseradish or Dijon mustard for an extra kick.
I serve this on salmon and fish burgers like salmon burgers, sardine cakes, tuna cakes, and crab cakes. I also like to dip fried fish or shrimp into it. I also add a little bit of fresh lemon juice. So good!
This recipe also keeps pretty well in the fridge. Just store the leftovers in an airtight container and it should be good for at least a week or longer. I've never tried to freeze it, but I bet it would freeze just fine as well.
