Today we are making homemade tartare sauce. This is a delicious complement to Fish Cakes and loved by all.

As a bonus, I'll also show you how to make your own mayonnaise.

I hope you enjoy.

Step 1: What You Will Need

  • Lime juice
  • About 1/8 red onion
  • 1 medium pickle (we used a gurken)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 10 Capers
  • A few celery or parsley leaves/stems
  • 1 Cup mayonnaise

You can make your own mayonnaise:

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • Pinch Paprika
  • 75 ml Olive Oil
  • 30 ml Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp red wine Vinegar
  • 15 ml Hot water

Step 2: Making the Mayonnaise - Egg and Mustard

Put the 2 egg yolks into a moderately sized bowl with the sugar, salt and paprika and give it a good beat with an electric mixer. Drop in the mustard and beat until thoroughly mixed.

Step 3: Lemon Juice and Water

Next add your lemon juice then mix.

Now with the beater going, very slowly add the olive oil, starting with a few drops progressing to a very small stream.

Now it is time for the water. Add it like you did with the olive oil.

Step 4: Now on to Making the Tartare Sauce

For this stage you will need:

  • Lime juice
  • About 1/8 red onion
  • 1 medium pickle (we've used a gurken)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 10 Capers
  • A few celery or parsley leaves/stems

Step 5: Blending

Using a food processor blend up your sauce until it becomes a smooth consistency.

Step 6: Completion

We have now finished a great tartare sauce.

You can experiment a little with the amount of lemon juice you use, adding more or less as you prefer.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and get great satisfaction from making your own tartare and mayonnaise.
