Tangy, Fruity, Creamy, Earthy, Yummy I use to think I knew tartar sauces until I tried this delectable sauce on the Salmon Burgers. It was so amazing I didn't even notice I was eating fish. The lemons, anchovies and capers in this recipe conspire to blow your taste-buds out of your mouth. No more store brought tartar sauce for me this stuff is supreme!!! Pros: A Great Upgrade from Run of the Mill Tartar Sauces Cons: None

This is an amazing sauce that can be an accompaniment to many other fish dishes. Delicious and complex in flavor, but super simple to make. Perfectly balanced that complements fish beautifully. We loved it! A definite replacement for any recipe that calls for tartar sauce.

I mixed this with canned salmon and it was even better than expected. I used minced onion and dried parsley since I didn't have the chives or fresh parsley. So very good!
