Creamy Dill & Tartar Sauce

Have you ever seen the frozen crab cakes at Trader Joe's? They're surprisingly tasty - and cheap! I bought them on a whim a little while ago, and saw them staring at me from the freezer the other night. They sounded really good - and easy! - and I figured I could whip up a sauce to go with them.

I know that crab cakes are often served with a cream of tartar sauce, but I was under the impression I didn't have any. So, I started mixing some ingredients that I thought might taste good. Turns out? I had the cream of tartar. I added some at the end, but I'm actually really happy with the sauce I wound up with. It was packed with flavor, and seemed to compliment the crab cakes so well.

If you make this, I'd love to hear how it turns out for you and what you serve it with. New ideas are my favorite!

Creamy Dill & Tartar Sauce
Recipe by Call Me Mrs. Rapp
Yields about 1/3 cup of sauce

*1/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
*1 tbsp light mayo (or more, depending on how much you like the flavor)
*2 tsp minced onion
*1 tsp dried dill
*1 tsp cream of tartar

*Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, mixing well. Serve with your dish of choice!

I served this with crab cakes and it was delicious! I bet it would go really well with another fish, especially one that might have a panko crust. Maybe even some veggies!


  1. Mmmmm...I love crab cakes. The sauce sounds good too!

    1. Crab cakes are one of my all-time favorites! I bet this sauce would be even better with fresh dill, too.


I love to hear from you!
