Tartar sauce contains finely diced herbs, capers, onions, dill pickles and lemon juice. The sauce can easily be adapted to suit your palate. For instance, if you like things spicy you can add a splash or two of hot sauce. Or substitute dill for parsley. Some people even like to add Worcestershire sauce.
