    French Tart's Note:

    Whitby and Scarborough on the North Yorkshire coast of England were the places of inspiration for me with this recipe, they specialise in locally caught fish, perfect for this iconic English dish. Whereas fish and chips are usually only accompanied by salt and vinegar (Malt vinegar please!) when eaten out of newspaper, when eaten in a Fish and Chip Cafe or Restaurant, you are always served this tartar sauce with your meal, tangy and wonderful with the fish especially and a squeeze of lemon. If I close my eyes I can almost imagine the sun on my face and the salty smell in the air, with seagulls wheeling around above, and the smell of that special supper or lunch to follow, after exploring the little cobbled streets. This is a bit of a cheats version as it uses ready made mayonnaise; however, if you do make your own, then please use your own home-made mayo for this recipe, as I often do. Now all you need is a sun hat, a deck chair and plenty of time to do nothing before enjoying your fish supper!

      Yum! Due to major heatwave our 'fish' was fish fingers and our 'chips' were just that, in the American sense - potato chips. Lovely creamy-sharp sauce. We all really enjoyed dolloping onto our fish fingers. Thanks.

      I've got to admit, Tartlette, that I drench my "chips" in Malt Vinegar! But this sauce on my fish was very companionably (I do think I just created a new word!) welcomed! I did as you suggested and used some home-made mayo as the starter. Everything else was essential to the product. I loved it, and plan on keeping some in the fridge. You never know when a FISH & CHIPS craving will attack! Made for the Voracious Vagabonds during ZWT 6.

      I made this little treasure yesterday to go along with Lemon-Batter Fish and the combination of the two recipes was sublime. Even our home fries were dipped into this yummy sauce. I didn't use it as salad dressing but it did cross my mind, lol. Tartlett, my dear, your recipes never fail to greatly please. Made for PAC, Spring 2014.
