Something fishy is going on in the United States today—something zesty and tangy, too. It’s National Tartar Sauce Day! Seafood lovers have been dipping their fried seafood (and other stuff, like french fries) in this fabulous condiment for ages, but if you are more of a landlubber you may not be familiar with this great treat. Tartar sauce is typically made with either mayonnaise or aioli, and usually has capers, gherkins, lemon juice and dill. You may also find chopped pickles or relish, capers, onions and parsley mixed in.

Hungry yet? If you’re dying to have some fried shrimp or fish and chips, check out Dan’s Best of the Best winners for Seafood Restaurant on both the North and South Forks. Some of these restaurants are currently closed for the winter season, but are reopening soon.
