The world of condiments is so infused with sugar and tartar sauce is no exception. Since it’s something I only have once in a blue moon I feel I’m better off whipping it up when I need it anyway, then I can make it with better, fresher ingredients and leave out the sugar.

Keto Tartar Sauce Recipe


  • 1 cup mayonnaise (*Store bought avocado-based mayo does NOT work great for this recipe. Make your own if you want to avoid less healthy oils or accept using a less healthy standard mayo and just eat in moderation.)
  • 1½ tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons dill pickle, finely chopped
  • 1½ teaspoons dill pickle juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon capers, finely chopped
  • 5 drops liquid stevia
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • sea salt, to taste


  1. Place all ingredients into a small bowl and mix well. Set aside for 30 minutes for the flavors to infuse. Serve as a condiment for keto fish patties or any other fish dish you like. Store in the fridge in a sealed container.
