  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons sweet relish
  • 1 tablespoon chopped nonpareil capers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallots
  • 1 teaspoon creole mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon Crystal hot sauce
  • ½ teaspoon creole seasoning
  • Kosher salt to taste

Here's What You Do

  • Measure and thoroughly mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Cover bowl and set in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.


This recipe yields approximately 1 ½ cup of tartar sauce. It can be easily doubled or scaled. I am estimating a serving size of 2 tablespoons for the nutritional calculation. 
Set the tartar sauce in the refrigerator for at least an hour so that the flavors have a chance to meld. If possible, let it sit refrigerated overnight.
