Tartar sauce

This is a james martin recipe

Tarter Sauce

3 free-range egg yolks
3 tsp Dijon mustard
4 tsp white wine vinegar
500ml vegetable oil
3 free-range eggs, hard boiled and grated
4 banana shallots, finely chopped
75g gherkins, chopped
100g capers, drained
50g flat leaf parsley

I didn't want to use any eggs as I wanted to keep this for several weeks
I found the mixture as liquid not a paste but it does call up for 500ml vegetable oil. I weighed it on the digital scales instead of measuring in a jug.


Any help? 500ml veg oil is a lot to have in this recipie

The first three ingredients are what you use to make mayonnaise

You cant leave out the eggs

Then the recipe calls for other things to be added to the mayo to create tarter sauce

You can't weigh out milliliters

Since we started making roasted garlic tartar sauce, no other recipe will do! Of course, for shrimp, soft shell crab or fried oyster Po Boys, nothing can compete with a nice NOLA remoulade.

Welcome to DC, otuatail!

This may not be what you're looking for - when I make tartar sauce I make it very simple:

1/2 C mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon (or more to taste) sweet pickle relish
1 Tablespoon finely minced onion, more or less to taste
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
chopped parsley - a Tablespoon or so
(Better after it sits for a while in the fridge so the flavors can blend)

I live alone and don't use it much - you could easily double it. I haven't bought bottled tartar sauce in many years.

There are some great sounding ideas here:
I need a good Tartar Sauce

500 milliliters is just a little over 2 cups of liquid or 16.9 oz or half a liter.
And it does sound right in proportion to the other ingredients.
Agreeing with the others you have to keep the eggs.
According to a quick search, it will keep up to 6 months in the refrigerator.

I mix up a couple of tablespoons as needed and use a recipe/process similar to the one that Cheryl posted. It is a little different each time I make it. If I have capers I chop a few and toss them in, if not I chop a few stuffed Spanish olives. Sometimes I use sweet relish, sometimes dill pickle relish or a chopped pickle or two.

Good luck!

When I'm out of tartar sauce, I just mix sweet relish with mayonnaise.

Yep. I add chopped pickled jalapeos and maybe a tsp of lemon juice. I love spicy tartar sauce with fish 'n chips.

That is what exactly a lot of restaurants do. And since the relish is cheaper than the mayo, there is more of that in it.
