Tartar Sauce

3/4 cup mayonnaise
4 tablespoons capers, with juice
3 tablespoons fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped dill pickle
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 shallot, minced
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Refrigerate 1/2 hour before serving. Excellent with fried fish.

My thoughts:

If you have only had tartar sauce out of a jar, this is a revelation. I am not a big mayonnaise fan but I love a good, savory tartar sauce. This was amazing with some fried fish. And I know that the picture makes it look like I ate a cereal bowlful, but it’s really only about a tablespoon’s worth in a tiny soy sauce bowl.
