Another great recipe from At Blanchard’s Table by Melinda Blanchard and Robert Blanchard (2003). This delicious tartar sauce dresses up any kind of seafood.
1 cup good mayonnaise (Duke’s or Hellmann’s)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon tomato paste (get Amore tomato paste in a tube)
2 tablespoons minced onion
1 tablespoon small capers, rinsed and drained
(if you only have larger capers, mince them)
1/4 cup minced dill pickles, patted dry
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, and tomato paste. Add the onion, capers, pickles, and salt and pepper. Whisk until blended.
