I've been making this "sauce" to serve over fish for years. I like it over simple pan fried fish, but you could serve it over crumbed fish too.

This is decent. I've had much better. Next time, I would coat the fish in Dijon and clarify the butter.

  1. Combine the flour, salt and pepper. Coat the fish in the seasoned flour, shaking off the excess flour. Heat half the butter to foaming over medium high heat in a heavy based pan.
  2. Cook the fish to your liking and remove to serving plates.
  3. Add the remaining butter, juice, zest, capers and parsley. Heat for a minute then serve over the fish sharing the capers between the plates.
