Perfect Homemade Tarter Sauce

There’s something about tartar sauce that just makes fish taste better. Here is a recipe that is good for you and tastes great! Look for PURE olive oil or avocado oil. Pure olive oil doesn't have a strong flavor and is not overly processed like light olive oil.

Total Time:


1 egg
3/4 cup pure olive oil (not extra virgin) or avocado oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon whole grain dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons chopped dill pickles
1 tablespoon capers, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried dill (optional)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


To make the mayo, in a jar of immersion blender add the egg, salt and lemon juice and 1/4 cup of oil. Press the immersion blender to the bottom of the jar and turn on. Pulse for 30 seconds without moving the blender.

Add the rest of oil and slowly move the blender up and down until the mixture thickens.

Add the rest of ingredients in a jar and mix well with a spoon or a silicon spatula. Adjust the taste with more salt and pepper if needed.

Serve immediately or transfer in an airtight container and store in the fridge until needed.
