Copycat Red Lobster Tartar Sauce

It was fish-and-chips week here. I’m a big fan of fish-and-chips, and I find myself ordering it regularly when we eat out. Usually I just like mine hit with a few good shakes of malt vinegar and maybe a squeeze or two of lemon. This time I decided to make a copycat of the tartar sauce you find at Red Lobster. And all I can say is… Wow! Now this is a great tartar sauce. I thought my beer-battered fish would be the winner-winner, but the tartar sauce really came through!

The perfect thickness for dipping fish or spreading onto a fish sandwich and packed with flavor, this copycat Red Lobster tartar sauce is really fantastic. I find myself looking forward to my next fish-and-chips lunch more and more now. Will it replace malt vinegar as my favorite? Yeah, it might actually. It’s just that good.

Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Boy, talk about something that flew off the table so fast that I was starting to wonder if we’d been robbed. We all thought that this copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits was even better than the restaurant favorite. They aren’t quite as crumbly. They held up to dunking in pot roast gravy, and that’s saying something. Granted, you probably can’t find pot roast gravy at Red Lobster.

I admit that when I made these copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits that I used a bit more parsley than the recipe below calls for. The biscuits are a little sweet (I’m not saying that in a bad way). The parsley gave a nice little herby contrast to that.

Next time I might try cutting back on the parsley, but increase the cayenne. I do like a little heat!

These biscuits are great for soppin’ up the broth from my NOLA smoked shrimp.
