Grilled Jalapeno Tartar Sauce
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
Printable Recipe 
1 medium to large jalapeno, stem removed, cut in half and seeds removed
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon jalapeno hot sauce (I used Arizona Gunslinger)
1 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
white pepper
kosher salt

Preheat grill to 400 degrees.  Place the jalapeno halves directly over the fire and allow to grill for 3-4 minutes per side, or until the jalapeno is softened but not completely charred (you might need to adjust your flame).  Remove from grill and allow to cool.  Once cooled enough to handle, chop or mince.

In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients together until well combined.  Taste for seasoning.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.  Use on fish, chicken, sandwiches, whatever you want... just make sure to Enjoy!

Hmmm, I'm thinking maybe I need some heat. Guacamole with roasted jalapenos - that could be it.

The first thing I thought when I saw this was, "How great would this be on tilapia?!" Then I laughed, because of your tilapia kick. I want to try this on fried catfish, too!

Grilled jalapenos in a creamy sauce is a great idea, Jenn! Sure wants to spread it on fried fish.

Candace said...

Tartar Sauce has never looked so good! I love that you added grilled jalapenos. Yum!

Chris said...

Fantastic creation, Jenn, that spicy tartar with the roasted jalapenos is enough to make me want to eat fish (and you know how significant THAT is).

Another great sauce, Jenn! I'm eager to make this at home to see what it tastes like... the ones at restaurants always taste different! I know this one will be a keeper :)
