Pan-Sautéed Rockfish With Capers

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by IngridH

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.

The flavor wasn't quite there. Thinking maybe it needed some garlic powder seasoning the fish with the salt and pepper.
