Would capers work in place of the usual pickles in tartar sauce? I'm mostly curious and it might help other people who want to try this as well! I figure that it would add a tangy kind of aftertaste.
I love capers and add them to different foods when I think it suits it. I'd much rather eat tartar (not tarter) sauce with capers than pickles in it. But them I'm not a fan of tartar sauce (maybe because of the pickles). If you add capers, rinse them first to remove excess salt, pat water off between a paper towel and chop finely. I think a tiny bit of finely grated raw garlic would suit it nicely. Let the flavours meld together in the fridge for a few hours too.
I think it would probably be a good sauce with the pickles swapped out, but I've only added capers to the pickles, not substitued.
