Fillets with Lemon Caper Butter Sauce


Just a recipe today. I should not say, “just.” This is one fantastic and delicious recipe! Best of all it is super quick and easy to make!


Fillets with Lemon Caper Butter Sauce



ou will need for 3 people:

¼ cup flour

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons butter, divided

4 thin fish fillets about 6 ounces each (flounder, tilapia, trout)

3 tablespoon capers

1 lemon, cut in half

Here is what you do:

Combine flour, salt and pepper in a plastic bag. Add fish filets one at a time and shake to coat, shake off excess.

Melt 1 tablespoon over medium heat in skillet.

Cook fillets until lightly browned on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes each side.

Place filets on a platter and keep warm.

Turn off the stove.

Squeeze the juice from one of the half lemon into the skillet.

Add the capers.

Off the heat, swirl the remaining two tablespoons of butter into the pan just until it melts.

Pour the butter sauce over the fish (and over the asparagus if serving – see serving suggestions below)

Garnish with remaining lemon slices and serve at once.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Asparagus, rice pilaf, melon slices, maybe a nice salad with some white wine.
