If you love seafood, then you know that no meal is complete without a delicious tartar sauce. This classic condiment is a tangy and creamy accompaniment to all kinds of fish dishes, and it’s easy to make at home. In this recipe, we’ll be using Nola Mayonnaise as the base for our tartar sauce, along with a variety of flavourful ingredients like capers, lemon zest, and chopped herbs.


  • 1 cup Nola Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped gherkins
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 1 tablespoon chopped tarragon
  • 1/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped spring onion
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the Nola Mayonnaise, chopped gherkins, capers, lemon zest, chives, dill, tarragon, grated carrot, chopped garlic, lemon juice, hot sauce, and chopped spring onion. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.
  2. Season the mixture with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate overnight, to allow the flavours to meld together.
  4. When you’re ready to serve the tartar sauce, give it a quick stir and taste again for seasoning. Adjust with additional salt, pepper, or lemon juice, as needed.
  5. Serve the tartar sauce chilled, alongside your favourite seafood dishes or other grilled meats.

This tartar sauce recipe is so simple to make, yet it packs a lot of flavour into every bite. The combination of fresh herbs, tangy capers, and zesty lemon really elevates the creamy Nola mayonnaise base. And because it’s homemade, you can adjust the seasoning to your liking, whether you prefer a spicier or milder version.
