      My family loves this recipe. I have made it 5 times already. I prepared recipe as stated and took MRSEL's advice and doubled sauce. Outstanding! The saltiness of the capers and browned butter almonds adds so much to this dish

      My DH and I enjoyed this classic fish preparation, and scraped up every last crispy, browned almond and tangy caper on our plate. I was confused by the term "Sauce" used in this recipe. The small amount of butter and the juice of half a lemon sizzled in a hot pan, does not create more than a drop or two of liquid. But the browned almonds and capers were a delicious garnish and we enjoyed your recipe.

      Really good! I ended up cooking the sauce in a separate pan while cooking the fish. I didn't want the fish to get soggy in the oven while waiting for the sauce. The only almonds I had in the pantry were whole, so I just chopped them up and used them. The flavors blended perfectly! I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks!
