    From Sunset's Fish book. Here's a really quick and easy sauce to prepare. These are ingredients that you probably have on hand. 30-minute chill time is included as passive "cooking" time.

      Good Friday and agghhh..... and NO tartare sauce!
      In a mad panic I had to find a great recipe, and this was it! I am so pleased I found this it was wonderful and the family loved it, even DD who does not usually eat tartare sauce used it and loved it. I did not use the pepper sauce and not a much relish as listed, but this was still wonderful.
      I will be using this from now on, seeing it is so quick and easy to make.
      Never again will I worry about not having tartare sauce on hand............... and I won't be wasting money throwing out half jars of left over tartare sauce either. An added bonus! ;-)

      Really great and easy. I used all mayonnaise rather than the half mayonnaise, half sour cream option. I went super light on the sweet pickle relish for personal preference reasons but the tartar sauce still tastes great.

      I just went to the fridge and realized we have no tartar sauce for the fish- so I looked this up on RecipeZaar. Boy am I glad I did so. It took seconds to make and I didn't use all the ingredients listed for the time sake and what I had on hand. I made it without the hot pepper sauce and minced onion and it was fabulous. What a keeper. Thanks.
