1. Beer Battered Fish & Chips;
The ultimate comfort food: crispy cod or haddock and crunchy hand cut chips served with a with a good amount of Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce on the side and a wedge of lemon. To take this dish to the next level try cooking the chips in the classic manner by twice cooking them blanch at a low temperature to cook the potatoes through, then fry at a higher temperature to give them their crisp, golden-brown exterior.
2. Tuna Mayonnaise Sandwich;
For a modern twist to a classic sandwich try using Birch & Waite’s Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce instead of a standard mayonnaise in a tuna mayonnaise sandwich. Drain a can of tuna (line caught if possible) and mix with the Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce. Lightly spread Dijon mustard onto a good Wholemeal grain bread or a rye sourdough, top with the Tartare tuna mayonnaise mix, slices of fresh cucumber and top with mixed lettuce. Serve with a handful of salt and vinegar chips on the side.
3. Hot smoked salmon fishcakes;
We all know that tartare sauce lends itself well to fish or fried foods so a combination of them both will never disappoint. Cook some peeled potatoes until soft and tender, mix in some flaked hot smoked salmon, sliced shallots, lemon juice, lemon zest, parsley, salt and pepper. Shape into cakes and dip into flour, beaten egg and then breadcrumbs. Lightly fry in oil until golden brown and serve with a simple green salad and Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce on the side for dipping.
4.Smoked salmon bagel;
An old favourite reimagined, try using Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce in a smoked salmon bagel. Take a bagel of your choice, slice in half & lightly toast. Spread a good amount of Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce on each side and top with sliced smoked salmon. Top with sliced red onion, sliced avocado and mixed lettuce.
5. Fennel & cabbage slaw – pastrami sandwich;
Due to the consistency of Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce can be used in place of where you may use a traditional mayonnaise. A classic slaw is a great example of this. For a contemporary spin try a shaved fennel, sliced onion and white cabbage slaw, generously dressed in Rich Tartare Sauce. Match this with a good grilled steak, a classic beef burger or serve as a side at any BBQ.
6. Tempura Fried Vegetables;
We all know that Tartare sauce is a great friend of fried foods but something a little different to try is serving tartare sauce with a bowl of tempura fried vegetables. Tempura batter is traditionally used in Japanese cuisine and is used to add a crisp, light coating to seafood and vegetables. Tempura batter absorbs less oil than some of its heavier counterparts, making it a healthier option for deep-frying. Slice up a range of vegetables including sweet potato, pumpkin, carrot, asparagus spears, green beans etc. lightly fry in the tempura batter and serve immediately with a generous amount of Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce for dipping and wedges of lemon on the side.
7. Use it as a dip for entertaining;
Tartare sauce is a great stand-alone product, light, tangy with gherkins, capers and parsley, serve simply as a dip along with a range of assorted crudité, roasted vegetables and toasted baguette pieces. Be sure to include whatever is in season, asparagus spears, cucumber and celery work extremely well with Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce.
8. Fish Finger sandwiches;
Fish finger sandwiches are a sure fire winner for the kids in the household. Cut basa fillets or a fish of your choice into finger size pieces, lightly crumb in flour, egg and breadcrumbs and fry until golden brown. Serve in soft floury bread buns topped with a good dollop of Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce, salad cress and mixed lettuce. For a gourmet addition, try adding a minted pea puree on the base of the bun for some extra sweetness. If time is of the essence this works just as well with store bought frozen fish fingers or goujons.
9. Grilled chicken burger;
As an alternate to fish or steak try pairing Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce with a grilled chicken burger. Take a lightly toasted brioche style bun, spread the base lightly with Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce, top with grilled chicken breast, a pickled slaw, sliced avocado and mixed lettuce. Serve with a side of French fries and of course extra Tartare Sauce for dipping.
10. Creamy Potato Salad;
Substitute mayonnaise for Birch & Waite Rich Tartare Seafood Sauce and you will have a potato salad that is full of flavour. Add some green peas, lemon zest and sliced shallots for an extra kick of flavour. Serve with your favourite grilled fish or steak or top with boiled egg and serve as a stand-alone dish.
