Copycat Red Lobster Tartar Sauce – Make fish and chips at home and enjoy dipping in a homemade tartar sauce that is a copycat of Red Lobster!
Let’s talk about fish and chips today. They have to be one of my families favorite things to have. I grew up in Wisconsin where Friday fish frys are a tradition.
I also have family from England. So fish and chips are kind of required. And you know what makes fish and chips over the top? Good quality tartar sauce. Even the best fried fish ever, is best when dipped in tartar sauce.
I am excited to be working with Gorton’s over the next couple of months to bring you a couple fun recipes. I always have Gorton’s beer battered fish filets in my freezer. My guys love it when we need a quick dinner. Everyone knows and trusts the yellow slicker wearing fisherman! The company has been around for 167 years. You can’t get much more trustworthy than that!
Today I am dressing it up with one of our favorites; Copycat Red Lobster tartar sauce. Everyone knows Red Lobster for their Cheddar Bay Biscuits, but the tartar sauce recipe is another staple. Sweet, tangy, and delicious!
Gorton’s fish has real flakey pieces of fish in their filets. You can see you are eating a quality piece of fish. Weeknights are busy at our house. Home from school and we have homework, band practice, track practice this spring and everything else. Have you checked out the Gorton’s Facebook Page recently? They have a funny video series with their famous fisherman.
I appreciate a shortcut when I can take it, and Gorton’s beer battered fish gives my guys the fried fish they love, and we don’t have to go through all the work of making it from scratch or take the time to find a place to go out. When I was growing up my dad always used to make Gorton’s fish sticks for us when my mom was away. It is great that I can feed my family the same thing I grew up with. Pretty sure my dad didn’t make this tartar sauce recipe when I was a kid though.
Copycat Red Lobster tartar sauce gives you fish that something special it needs to take your dinner over the top. Serve with frozen French fries and a slice of lemon and you will have a traditional English fish experience. The only thing closer would be serving it on newspaper. You know the other thing that would be great on these fish filets? Caness Sauce. A little more spice, but also tasty.
So stock your freezer with Gorton’s fish filets, and have a few staple ingredients on hand and you can whip up this homemade tartar sauce in minutes! Do you know how to make tartar sauce?
