    Christmas Carol's Note:

    I make this every time we have fish sandwiches. It tastes just like Mc Donald's so if you love their fish sandwiches you'll enjoy this. Another great copycat from Todd Wilbur.

      Mix thoroughly.
    3. 3

      Tip; If making sandwiches, add even more Mc Donald's flavor by lightly toasting cut sides of regular hamburger buns in a dry, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
    6. 6
      Watch closely so they do not burn.
    7. 7
      Melt a slice of American cheese atop a piece of cooked, breaded fish {Mrs. Paul's works well} and assemble sandwich.

      This does NOT taste like McDonald's tartar sauce. McDonald's tartar sauce isn't this sweet or this bland. I'm going to attempt to make tartar sauce again in the future using dill relish instead of the sweet, some of the juice from the pickles, and maybe some lemon juice and prepared mustard and see if I can obtain better results. Sorry. :(

      I tasted and tasted McDonald's tarter sauce and I know they used dill, relish it isn't sweet. I asked for and they gave me some extra. I made my version using Best Food (Hellmans) and Vlasic Dill Relish. My family could not tell the difference in a blind taste test. So simple and so right.

      This is not like McDonalds, its better! Its sweeter tasting thanks to hellmans mayo. I couldnt find Heinz sweet relish so I use branstons relish from sainsburys, it was slightly spicier but my wife and I agree its many times better than maccy d's. Thanks carol
