This is a lebanese sauce we make with fish. This is also served with falafel in middle eastern restaurants.

0.5 cup tahini sauce (sesame paste)
0.25 cup fresh lemon juice
0.25 cup water (you can add more when checking the thickness of the sauce
2 cloves garlic mashed.
A tablespoon of dry parsley (optional)

Mix all of these together and dip the fish in it. Very high in calories but tastes great :-)

    Awesome!(: this is my go to cause its so simple yet delicious:

    -FF Greek yogurt
    -lemon juice
    -dill
    -onion/ garlic powder

    Sometimes I'll add some apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar or even hot sauce, but that's my base sauce for any fish recipes I make!(:

    Calories are probably about the same as tartar sauce and I think the the tahini is more nutritious than the mayonnaise it replaces. How long do think it will keep in the ice box?

    This reminds me of the delicious garlic paste they serve at Zankou's chicken (a Lebanese chain in LA). The recipe is a mystery and is much sought after! I have to try this soon.

    The sauce gets thicker is you let it settle for too long. It's best eaten fresh, otherwise you have to add more water at a later time. It's really easy though, you can always make it fresh. The calories are about 100 for 1 tablespoon.
