You haven’t tasted tartar sauce until you’ve tried homemade tartar sauce. The secret to a stellar tartar sauce is to use homemade dill pickles. The pickles, and the brine, made with mulled seasonings, is remarkably better tasting than a store-bought pickle.
1 cup (250 ml) mayonnaise
1/3 (80 ml) cup finely chopped dill pickle
1-2 cloves Ontario garlic, minced
1 Tbsp capers
1 Tbs (5 ml) dill pickle juice
1 tsp (5 ml) lemon juice
1 tsp (5 ml) paprika
Combine ingredients in a bowl.
Add sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste.
Refrigerate, covered, until use.
