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.

Traditional Tartar Sauce…
Tartar sauce is a traditional accompaniment to fried seafood.  I have it here for you old school folk who know what you like and stick with it.  🙂

    Cup mayonnaise
6    Cornichons, minced
1    Tablespoon fresh parsley,minced
1    Tablespoon capers, drained and minced
1    Tablespoon lemon juice
Dash hot sauce (optional)
