mayo, hot dog relish, dash of citric acid powder (because lemon juice makes it runny IMO)

fancy: add chopped capers

I like the Kraft stuff better than Heinz but it is hard to find...maybe when the McDonald's/Kraft version comes out I will be in luck again.
Really? Mine isn't the slightest bit runny. How much liquid were you adding?

I like it thick like sour cream or straight mayo so any amount of liquid ruins that for me. That's why I use the citric acid powder: to get a really thick tartar sauce.

That makes me want some deep fried cod filet. Lightly coated with flour, salt & pepper. With a fresh lemon wedge on the side.
Halibut!! Cod is good but halibut is sublime. That's what I'm deep frying tomorrow. In a very light beer batter.

Just make your mayo thick with extra lemon in place of water in the first place and no problemo.

Personally I also like it really thick, chopped capers and gherkins, no hot dog relish. worcester and tabasco

A little bit of mustard is a must IMO...therefore the hot dog relish.

You can use 1 Tbsp vinegar:1 yolk:~ 1 cup oil or you can use a blend of lemon juice and water for the vinegar (tones it down because it is more acidic than vinegar...you could untone that)

I am happy using Hellmann's because it is so stable. Finding hot dog relish is a major problem and I have resorted to making my own. I would use dill pickle and yellow or sweet mustard in place of green sweet relish, which is not the same thing, if I had to.

Who puts Worcestershire sauce in tartar sauce? ;)

Would buttermilk dill sauce also suffice? M&M meatshop has it for 3.99 per bottle and it's amazing.
