Tartar Sauce

The classic creamy sauce perfect for any breaded fish.

Tartar Sauce


  • 1/2 cup of fat-free or light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp of sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tbsp of onion powder
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp of dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Taste and add salt and/or pepper to your liking.
  3. Cover and leave in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.

Quick Notes

Be sure to use sweet relish, as dill relish might make the sauce a bit too savory or even salty.

The reason why you leave the sauce in the refrigerator for a few hours is so the flavors can meld together better. I’ve noticed when you make this sauce fresh, it’s not as ideal in flavor as when it’s been sitting for a while.


Feel free to add or omit the dill or lemon juice. Put in other flavors if you see fit.
