This is decent. I've had much better. Next time, I would coat the fish in Dijon and clarify the butter.

Really easy, really fast, nice with all sorts of fish. Be sure to rinse the capers if you even think they will be too salty. I've been doing this for years, if you haven't try this for sure!

What a great meal! I followed the directions exactly using red snapper fillets and dinner was on the table in about 10 minutes. My DH could not stop raving about it, which is a huge compliment! We served with brown rice sauteed with olive oil, garlic, spinach, and feta cheese. Thanks for a great & easy meal!

Fantastic. I used catfish fillets for the fish and followed the recipe to the letter. Super easy, super tasty. This sauce would work on just about any fish or even plain chicken breasts. YUM!

This is such a quick recipe. Cooked and on the table in no time at all. I used flathead fillets, although we are not really fish lovers here, I am trying to add something extra, yet healthy to our diets. Jan already knows she has taken us to the dark side with capers (which this family never ate until I found another wonderful recipe by Jan and we now enjoy in certain recipes), but Jan with this recipe, you have also made us enjoy and want fish a little more. This recipe was enjoyed by the whole family, and the outcome was very heavily discussed at the table, and the consensus was that this was the way they really liked fish cooked and loved it being served with this sauce. The family really enjoyed this recipe thanks Jan. I will try a few different ways with fish from now on, but this one will be the keeper and probably the one they will ask for from now on!

Had this on the table in < 10 minutes including making the sauce! The key is to get the butter really hot to make the fish nicely browned and to give a nice nutty flavor to the sauce. I used mahi mahi fillet with great results. Super simple, yet delicious fish recipe. Also, I just seasoned fish, then dredged in flour.

Yum! I used tilapia. I thought I was making enough for leftovers for lunch the next day, but my whole family (including an 11 month old and a 3 year old) went back for seconds, so no leftovers! This is definitely going in my regular rotation. Thanks for the recipe!

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #77* A SURE inner ! We eat fish frequently, most often tilapia loins (Costco) -- and adding very little since we enjoy the flavor of the fish. A little butter, lemon, dill -- and we are happy. AMAZING how much the capers added -- had not given them a thought ! pan fried, served with steamed Jasmine rice, and fresh broccoli from the garden. Thanks for posting, Jan.

I made this with tilapia. It was simple and delicious. Using fresh squeezed lemon and lemon zest is a must. I took Kasha's suggestion and rinsed the capers. I am trying to forget that my bf and I wolfed down a quarter cup of butter in one sitting. It sure was good.
