Dilly Tartar Sauce

A homemade tartar sauce with fresh lemon juice is a delicious accompaniment to breaded fish fillets. I serve this particular combination with Chip-Crusted Oven-Fried Catfish. For a more mildly flavored fish like flounder or tilapia, try substituting fresh parsley for the dill and adding a bit of lemon zest in addition to the juice.
