Three Super Sauces for Fried Fish

Notes: It took me the better part of a day to figure out which sauce to serve with the Crispy Rum Battered Fish. Tartar sauce would the traditional choice, but I love Spicy Mayo… and then I came across this interesting taco sauce and here we are with 3 sauces from which to choose!

Wickedly Good Fish Taco Sauce…

This was taken from It is similar to my Zesty Sauce with a few extra ingredients.

  • ½ Cup Sour cream
  • ½ Cup mayo
  • ½ Teaspoon cumin
  • ½ Teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ Teaspoon dried dill
  • ½ Teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ Teaspoon ground chipotle chili powder
  • ½ Teaspoon capers, minced
  • 1 Jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro chopped
  • Juice of half a lime

In a small bowl whisk all the ingredients together. The sauce should have the consistency of a pour-able creamy dressing, if it is too thick add more lime juice.

  • Cover the sauce and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Serve chilled.

Spicy Mayo Sauce…

I use this sauce on everything!! Burgers, chicken, fried fish, I especially like it with fries.

  • 1 Cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tablespoons Sriracha (more if you want it spicy)
  • ¼ Teaspoon chilli powder

Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  • 6 Cornichons, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley,minced
