Nothing compliments a fish dinner like a good tartar sauce. Also, I'm pretty determined at the moment to shove mayonnaise into just about everything. Just for Brian, cause he's special, and it is part of my mission to give him a hard time.

Joking aside, this sauce is pretty darned good, and I recently paired it with my Lenten Fish Fry, for an awesome Lenten Friday meal.

Notes: If you, like Brian, don't really care for mayo, that's OK. Traditionally tartar sauce is a mayonnaise-based sauce, but I've made this before with all sour cream instead, and it's still pretty great. The flavor is a bit tangier, but not in a bad way at all. It changes the macros slightly, which I included in the recipe notes section below.
