What’s in Spicy Cajun Tartar Sauce?
Knowing how to make a good spicy mayo is a complete game changer.
By making it homemade and storing it in the fridge, you can have infinite access to a favorite dipping sauce (onion rings anyone?), and it’s great on fish tacos and even fresh baked salmon too.
It only requires a few ingredients:
- dijon mustard
- minced onion
Super easy and they are staples that most people have.
What can I use this Homemade Tartar Sauce with?
This tartar sauce is fantastic with so many things!
Seafood is the first part of the answer. It goes great with any type of fish or shrimp – baked for fried.
But it is also fantastic with steamed veggies, french fries, spooned into baked potatoes… there is a lot this sauce can go with!
How do I store tartar sauce? How long will it last?
We store this Cajun Tartar Sauce in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to about 1 week.
Also, it tastes better each day that the ingredients have to sit and marry together.
Can I freeze tartar sauce?
I wouldn’t recommend it. I have never found a mayonnaise based sauce that thaws correctly and hasn’t change consistency in the freeze.
