What is Tartare Sauce?

Tartare sauce is a cold and creamy condiment with herbs through it. blended in. It has a sweet, tangy taste.

At its most basic, tartare sauce will consist of mayonnaise, chopped pickles and chopped onions, providing that balance of tart and sweetness. Some versions will also contain capers, olives, dill, lemon juice, vinegar, or even mustard.

It is a condiment that is typically served cold, often as a side for dipping – it tastes great with fried seafood.

But don’t stop there! This sauce also works well as a sauce added to sandwiches or atop steak tartare (more on the differences between tartar and tartare later!).

What Does It Taste Like?

Tartare sauce is part sweet, part savoury with a bit of tartness. It’s often served with fried seafood dishes, as its smooth creaminess really compliments the savoury flavor and crispy texture.

It can be more tart or more mild depending on the amount of ingredients like capers or lemon juice that are added.

Is it Tartare or Tartar?

Both! While known in the states as Tartar, in the UK and other Commonwealth Nations, it is commonly referred to as ‘Tartare’.

Is it vegan?

Traditionally made tartare is not vegan as it contains mayonnaise, but it is gluten-free! 

Can I Cook With It?

This condiment should be served cold. Usually it will be served on the side as a dipping sauce, or as part of a sandwich filling. For example, it works deliciously in fish finger sandwiches or fish in a bun!
