We used to make this by the bucket (literally) but you can make it slowly if you like, combining the ingredients gently by hand and making the mayonnaise first and folding the mustard, capers and gherkins together. But really either way it tastes the same!

Ingredients (makes 3 cups)

  • 3 Egg yolks
  • 1 cup Olive oil
  • 1tbsp Djion Mustard
  • 1/4 cup Capers
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Gherkins
  • 1tbs Vineager
  • 2tbs lemon juice
  • 1 salt and pepper to tase
  • 2 tbs finely chopped dill


  1. Combine egg yolks and vinegar in a food processor or blender and switch on
  2. Add oil in a few drops at a time, when the mixture begins to thicken begin adding your oil in a slow but steady stream (now you have mayonnaise)
  3. Add remaining ingredients and blitz until you reach the desired consistency (chunkiness) season with salt and pepper to taste.


Sauce will last up to a week in the fridge, you can throw all ingredients in from the beginning if you like, it will make it smoother but I like to more blended taste better! Perfect on battered or crumbed fish and sea food!
