Diced pickles, onions, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper are the classic ingredients in tartar sauce, and Paula Deen’s version is no different. Dried herbs, such as rosemary, basil, or parsley, can be added to seasoning for a more customized taste. If you want a stronger garlic flavor, you may use garlic powder instead.

Spicy smoked paprika or chili powder was something I noticed some cooks putting into the sauce. After all, you’re free to mix in any spices you choose.
