I’m a big fan of po boy sandwiches. Sometimes fancy, sometimes not so fancy. Last weekend I made two ‘cheater’ fried clam and fried shrimp po boys. I call them ‘cheater’ because I used frozen already-fried seafood. But just because I’m cheating doesn’t mean I’m not going to step up my game a bit by adding a fantastic chipotle tartar sauce. A bit spicy and a bit tangy, this is the perfect tartar sauce to kick up any seafood.
You want to use a mayonnaise that isn’t too thin or your tartar sauce will, of course, be thin. Not that that’s a bad thing, but most people like a nice, thick tartar sauce. You could call it a remoulade or comeback sauce if yours turns out a bit on the thin side!
- 2 tablespoons canned chipotle chiles, with some of the adobo sauce
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- Place all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth.
