“A local seafood restaurant here has the best tartar sauce so upon my search for a identical one I finally found one on the internet that is so close it's scary. So creamy and good! Although I like a little more spice here or there, like garlic, this is the actual ingredients they listed--make as written, taste and adjust to your tastes!”
