Recipe: Regina's Jalapeño Tartar Sauce

By Regina Charboneau

My jalapeño tartar sauce is great with fried shrimp, fish, or oysters. Caution: Do not try any of this in a hoop skirt—unless you were born in Natchez.

    • 1 tablespoon capers
    • ¼ cup dill pickle slices
    • ¼ cup green onion
    • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • ¼ cup sour cream
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel

Place all the ingredients into bowl of food processor. Use the pulse button to mince all ingredients.
