I used to love the jalapeno tartar sauce that a local restaurant offered so I decided to come up with my own version. Now I always have some made up at home.

I absolutely loved this tartar sauce. I didn't change one thing and it was just wonderful on the salmon croquettes that I made for my family. What a great change from the traditional. From now on I will make both kinds but I'll bet this sauce will be used more than the sweet or dill traditional sauces. Thank you DBRENNY. Read More

I love anything hot but this had hardly any flavor and it was too salty. I will have to blame myself for making the full receipt I should have made 1/2. I made it a day ahead of time for a fish fry it was hardly eaten at all so I guess my guests didn't love it either. I am slowly using the remainder for tuna salad and other like dishes so I don't waste. I might try again with a jalapeno with more oomph not sure I have given up entirely. Love the idea. Read More

Super! The wife and I both like to eat the heat and we both like fish. So for us it doesn't get any better than this. We've made it so often that it's no longer "Jalapeno" Tarter Sauce. Around here its just Tartar Sauce. If you don't have capers I think you will enjoy it anyway but I urge you to buy some. They definitely add a sparkle to it. So simple and so good yet I would have never thought to add Jalapenos. Many thanks Dianna Brown-Brenny. Read More

I can't wait to try this. I really love the idea of kicking up the spice level in tartar sauce! Read More

We don't have any kind of tartar sauce at our house except jalapeno thanks to this excellent recipe! I leave out the capers because we never have any. Sometimes I chop a dill pickle as the recipe says and sometime I replace it with dill relish - just easier. I put a lot more jalapeno in than 2 teaspoons but we have a garden with lots of jalapenos!

I bring home Snapper and Grouper every year for a NYE Fish Fry. Two years ago I made this tartar sauce and everyone about 30 people loved it. Last year didn t make it and had to listen to people complain all night as we didn t have it. This year 2019 made it again. Was another hit and everyone was happy once again. Printed the receipt out for people to take home. Had to do a second printing 25 copies in all. This is a big hit. I do bump up the jalapeño as I buy two of the largest available and use 100% of the peppers. I also chop up everything very fine. Read More

Fabulous. If you got the dill pickles and capers in there do your heart a favor and skip the salt this recipe I think doesn't need it and I prepared mine without it. Read More
