Can I use mayonnaise instead of using an egg?

Yes, for quickness, you can. Just add the lemon juice, gherkins, capers, parsley and tarragon to it.

How long will fresh tartare sauce last?

Fresh tartare sauce is an excellent way to add flavour and texture to various dishes. It can last in the fridge for up to two weeks if it is stored properly. To ensure freshness, the tartare sauce should be kept sealed in a sterilised jar and refrigerated immediately after use. Once opened, use it within a week.

Ideally, make enough to use on the day you need it or the day before. The sauce should also not be left out at room temperature for extended periods of time. Properly stored, the tartare sauce will give any dish a flavorful and creamy kick that you won’t want to miss out on!

What to serve with tartare sauce

This sauce is the perfect accompaniment to many dishes! Fish and chips are, of course, the classic combination, but it can also be served with seafood dishes such as salmon or tuna steaks and vegetables like artichoke hearts or potatoes. It can also be used to replace mayonnaise in sandwiches for an added zing. For an indulgent treat, try serving tartare sauce with lightly fried calamari rings—it adds delicious flavour and a creamy texture!
