Yummy yummy!!! Because DH and I are strange, we cooked with the capers in the sauce and then we removed them before eating! We like the flavor they leave behind but not the actual capers! Weird, I know! But we did enjoy this immensely over some oven roasted potatoes! Mmmm! Will definitely make this again! Made for The Queens of Quisine ZWT6 Family Picks!

Easy and yummy! Loved the capers in it. I served with salmon. Thanks! I'm gonna have this with potatoes too. Made for ZWT#6 by a fellow Looney Spoon Phoodie!

We loved this sauce!!! I was pan frying some fresh fish and having steamed fingerling potatoes. I made the sauce first and then decided to use it to fry the fish. Rather than have butter on the table I drenched the potatoes in it too. It also made it on to the fish :) This will be a keeper in our house! Made on behalf of the Looney Spoon Phoodies for ZWT6.
