I found this recipe searching for a good, quick, tartar sauce recipe for some potato crusted cod filet's I had in the oven. I happened to have all of the ingredients so I just started throwing them into a bowl without measuring and adjusted the pepper and lemon zest to taste as I went along. I highly recommend this as a great tartar sauce that is easy to whip up and you can enjoy right away. Best tartar sauce I've ever made and will be a regular addition to our fish nights.
Pan-Fried Tilapia with Tangy Tartar Sauce
A dusting of flour, a little oil, and a hot skillet create a golden crust on these fillets. A dollop of tartar sauce offers the finishing touch. Keep this tartar sauce in the fridge to add flavor to fish and sandwiches.
