Lemon-Habanero Tarter Sauce

Let me apologize for the picture.. it's not the greatest.  Most of the pictures I took were out of focus or too dark... BUT.. despite how it may photograph this is an intensely wonderful tarter sauce.  Granted, this is not for the faint of heart (or maybe I should say the faint of taste buds)... Oh, no, no, no.. you must be a brave soul to even consider trying this.  But for those that choose to step into this realm of heat, they will be rewarded with a wonderfully, spicy new tarter sauce that will become an instant favorite.  Who knows, you may never go back to that plain old tarter sauce again!

I'm guessing that's a piece of tilapia in the photo? I'm in the mood for some spice, but we won't be doing dinner at home until tomorrow.

That sounds like some feisty sauce!!! Plain ol' tartar sauce definitely needs some oomph, though, so this sounds perfect!

My spice loving husband would really, really dig this sauce!

Jenn, you are SO HOT!! I mean, habanero?? Come on! But I'll probably try it because my husband loves hot. No matter what I cook, he goes to the refrigerator to get out one of the many bottles of hot sauce. :-)

I've actually grown to consider habanero as my favorite pepper. I'd love this!
