"Confidence is going after Moby Dick in a rowboat and taking the tartar sauce with you." Zig Ziglar

The refrigerator light goes on...

This was one of those recipes that my wife mused about. It works for almost anything that you would use tartar sauce for (read that fish), but it's great on a lot of other things. Use it as an alternative spread for sandwiches, for example.

My brother especially likes Heinz India Relish (pricy in the U.S.), and he's probably right that it would be good in this recipe, but I was out when I tested this. A bit of mango chutney would be pretty fantastic too.
