We love this dish, I serve it with baby carrots, steamed, mashed Gorgonzola cheese mashed potatoes and a small garden salad.

This marinade rocks! Very gourmet. I couldn't imagine making this without the capers. They add such great flavor.

Easy to prepare and very flavorful. I will definetly make again. I used one large lemon to get about 4 tbsp. of juice, which was plenty. Used with a combo of halibut and cod and both turned out wonderful on the grill. Perfect for a cold winter night in Montana!

A delicious, healthy dish. If I make any change next time, I would use 4 tablespoons of lemon juice rather than 5. That's just a personal choice. The recipe is delicious as is and I highly recommend it.
