Used two tilapia fillets (cut the recipe down for just DH and I) and followed the directions. I knew this would be a hit with both of us being we love lemon and capers...just the right amount. Definately a keeper and going into my Favorites of 2013. Thank you for posting. (served with rice pilaf and a green salad). Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #83 - December 2013.
A very nice way to prepare fish fillets. I used flounder fillets and reduced the recipe to 2 servings. The fillets were browned in a combination of olive oil and butter with additional butter being added along with the capers, sliced lemons and juice. There is a wonderful lemon flavor without being overpowering. Made for Aussie Swap.
Loved this, just loved it! Ticked all my boxes, fresh fish with a tangy hot dressing and a wonderful savoury crust! I used 2 large cod fillets and cut the dressing quantities and crust quantities back. I served this with crispy potato balls, carrots and spinach for a wonderful mid-week supper. Made for the Aus/NZ recipe swap, many thanks KK! FT :-)
