Spare can of crab meat? Try this simple, campfire approved, panko crusted crab cake recipe as an appetizer or pair it with a salad or soup for dinner.

Living tiny doesn’t leave a lot of room for specialized products, particularly if they need refrigeration. When I lived in a sticks and bricks house, it wasn’t a big deal to have a random bottle of dijon mustard sit on a back shelf for months. But living with a cooler or small RV refrigerator, there simply isn’t space for something without an immediate value. So, while it doesn’t make sense for me to buy a bottle of tartar sauce, the ingredients are simple and common enough for me to make my own. Here is my simple, easy, homemade tartar sauce recipe.

Homemade Tartar Sauce Recipe


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine mayonnaise, relish, onion, juice, salt, and pepper.
  2. Keep mixture refrigerated until ready to serve
