Tartar Sauce Vegan

Tartar sauce is a sauce usually served with seafood dishes, and often used as a condiment for specialty fast foods. As a composition, tartar sauce traditionally is a mayonnaise-based sauce filled with egg, oil with tangy pickles, lemon and sometimes capers to create a sauce very different than just mayo.

Based on this, tartar sauce can, very easily, be turned into its vegan counterpart. Simply replace the mayo with a vegan version, either store-bought, or homemade made out of cashews, and then just throw the same ingredients in there! Vegan food does not have to be as tough as we make it out to be.

Try this with my vegan beer battered fish!
