Jalapeño Tartare Sauce


Today’s blog comes from Sharon, Brisbane, Australia.

When I lived in Los Angeles, I used to love Trader Joe’s Tartare Sauce with Jalapeños – I think I have finally managed to copy their recipe. Here it is, served with Moreton Bay Bugs – these are found as you would expect in Moreton Bay here in Queensland, Australia. They are a type of slipper lobster and totally delicious.


Jalapeño Tartare Sauce

1/2 cup good mayonnaise
2 Tbs small-diced pickles or cornichons
1 Tbs lemon juice
1 Tbs capers
1 tsp coarse-grained mustard
Pickled jalapeños – chopped finely – to taste
Pinch kosher salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper

Mix together and serve.

  1. Those Moreton Bay Bugs looks like strange critters, but so do crawdads, and they are yummy. The tartare looks delicious, too. —Wish you were still around serving up tasty treats with drinks.
