a tartare recipe

We were fortunate enough today to be given some snapper for our dinner so I made some tartare sauce to go with it

Here is how I did it

Tartare Sauce

1 clove of garlic
1 egg (most recipes call for egg yolks only but I have
always found it fine to use the whole egg)
juice of 1 or 2 lemons depending on how lemony you like it
pinch of salt
approx 1 cup of oil (I use grapeseed, you dont want anything too strong tasting)

Put everything except the oil into a food processor. Whizz for a few seconds.  With the food processor going very slowly start adding the oil one drop at a time.  If you add it too quickly it will speperate.  Once you have added about 1/8 of the oil you can start adding it a bit faster, but keep it to a steady stream and make sure its all being blended in as you go.  Keep going until it reaches the right consistency.

Add to this some finely chopped gherkin and capers.  I like to add some dill to mine usually but didnt have any today.

And this is what we did with ours tonight, some coleslaw, panfired snapper and homemade buns using this recipe which I can honestly say is the best and easiest bread recipe I have ever tried
