This sauce is excellent served with my codfish cakes (Cod Fish Cakes). Increase the horseradish to suit your taste.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cornichons (or sour pickles)
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 12 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 6 tablespoons good quality mayonnaise (I use hellman's or homemade)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a small bowl, combine celery, cornichons, horseradish, parsley, mustard, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with fish.

Marie Alice, this was without a doubt our favorite tartar sauce. In fact, this will be our only tartar sauce from now on. We like our sauces with a kick and this certainly delivered. Thnx so much for posting.
