I really dug this! I thought it could have used a little more acidity (and admittedly I couldn't find my capers) but the flavors were awesome together! I used "Just Mayo" for the mayonnaise which I highly recommend.

I originally made this for some fresh fried fish that a buddy and I had caught and since then have used it as a marinade on chicken, pork chops and even as just a dip for tortilla chips and everyone who has tried it and loves it!!!!! Wow!!!!! Great recipe....thank you for submitting this. The only thing I did differently is add some chives and a little bit of Tony Chacheres cajun seasoning (but I add that to Great recipe!!! Thanks again.

This is now my favorite tartar sauce. I had it with pan-fried, breaded fish and it was incredible. I followed the recipe almost exactly and would do so next time too (except that I would check the spiciness of my chile next time -- mine was a bit hotter than expected). I used low fat mayo instead of full fat, and I really couldn't tell. The cilantro is just great in this...I never would have thought of this combo on my own. Thanks for posting!
