Caper Butter for Grilled Fish
(Shared recipe submitted by Alex.)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 4 tablespoons whipped butter
- 2 ounces capers
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Lean fish filets
Heat grill. Combine butter, lemon juice, capers and set aside. Rub fish with oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill fish until done, 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Serve with butter/caper mixture.
Notes: The grilled fish can be basted with the mixture. It can also be used as a dip for fried fish. For those not familiar with capers, they are quite salty because they are cured in a brine. That is why they are rinsed before using and additional salt might not be needed. The smaller varieties have more flavor. Chopping the capers in a food processor might add flavor.
