    tarter sauce! my special recipe is based on a recipe from a fave seafood restraunt in town.

    about one roasted red pepper chopped

    about 1/4 cup of yellow onion (cause they're sweet)

    chopped pickles, 1-2 dill

    mayo 1cup to 2cups


    pepper and paprika

    this can be made creamy, runny or chunky, you decide by how much mayo you want in it! and it's delicious!!

    My favorite sauce for crab cakes is Creole Horseradish Sauce.


    1 cup mayonnaise

    1 tablespoon cream-style horseradish

    1 tablespoon Creole mustard

    Just stir together. Very simple, very good.

    Wasabi aioli. Which is a mayonaise with a little wasabi oil or powder in it. Also try a light balsamic reduction or pickled ginger, chopped cilantro might also work well with it.
