Pan-Sautéed Rockfish With Capers

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 15 mins

Adapted from Cooking Light- September 2009. The original called for trout, but I often can't find it here, so I made this with Rockfish. I think any flaky white fish would work fine. I served this with orzo, to catch the sauce, but rice would work equally well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Add the oil and swirl to coat the pan.
  3. Season the fish on both sides with the salt and pepper.
  4. Add the fish to the pan, and cook about 2 -3 minutes on each side, or until the fish flakes easily.
  5. Remove the fish to a warm plate.
  6. Add vermouth, lemon rind, lemon juice, capers and herbs to the pan.
  7. Cook for 30 seconds.
  8. Add the butter to the pan, whisking to incorporate into the sauce.
  9. Pour the sauce over the fish, top with the parsley.
