Homemade Tartar Sauce

Hey everyone! Today I’m sharing how to make a homemade tartar sauce. I shared recently how to make homemade mayonnaise, which is the base for the tartar Sauce.

Home made Tartar Sauce Recipe

There is nothing easier than make a tartar sauce and the best part is that you can even add some extra seasoning of your choice to make it even tastier.

Also as I mentioned before, Even though it is available ready-made in jars, the flavor doesn’t compare to a homemade tartar sauce. It’s healthier and you can make many variations from there.


  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup of Canola oil {this measure is aproximate}
  • 1 tsp of white vinegar
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • Pinch of salt
  • Black Pepper
  • 1 Green onion
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2-3 capers


First of all, we make the mayonnaise. Put the egg yolks into a blender, add the garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mix well all of these together. Then, add a continuous thin drop of oil to the egg mixture and mix this in. For a full detailed tutorial on how to make mayonnaise check my post homemade mayonnaise.

When the Mayo is ready, add the green onion, parsley and capers. Mix well.

The tartar sauce goes so well with fish and any seafood. I used it with my breaded tilapia. Ooooh yummm!!!. If you haven’t made it yet you should definitely try it! It’s so yummy.

The tartar souse can be served at once or kept in the fridge for up to one day.

Serve and Enjoy!

  1. I’m not sure why, but I’d never thought to make tartar sauce before! Sounds like a great DIY. I hope you can stop on by and share this or any other recipe with us on Five Friday Finds! :)

  2. I love fish so this is a great recipe for me! Thank you for linking at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you again next week.

  3. I make homemade tartar sauce all the time but I cheat by using store bought mayonnaise (So I guess it’s semi-homade). I just mix diced dill pickles with a spoon full of mayonnaise but I bet the capers make it taste more authentic (I just never have any around but I keep pickles).

    1. I don’t like the jar ones either! Nothing better than homemade one! Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my recipe!
      Have a wonderful weekend!
