  • Cook the fish until it is golden brown on both sides and just cooked through (timing will depend on thickness).
  • Place the fish onto warm serving plates.

  • Season well and pour over the fish.
  • Fold the chives through the potatoes and serve those alongside with the lemon wedges.

    Loved the sauce, loved the capers and the lemon. I didn't have fresh parsley and chives (shame on me!), but since I'm getting ready to go out of town, I just used dried. This is wonderful. The potatoes are delicious exactly as stated, but even more delicious dragged through the lemon-caper sauce from the fish. Thanks for sharing!

    I made this recipe using very fresh snapper filets; the potatoes were great, but we found that the sauce was too tangy for the fish, it seemed to overpower a bit. I am not sure why, maybe my lemon was more tangy because other reviewers especially liked the tanginess. I am surprised because we use lemon in many things

    This is a wonderful recipe that becomes a wonderful meal. I had to use frozen snapper but thats a price you pay for moving away from the coast unfortunately. We both loved it and I found it easy to put together. The flavors are paired very well and I really enjoyed the capers. Thanks Pat for a winner that I'll make again. :D
