Lemon Caper Butter Sauce
This lemon caper butter sauce was a creation made by Chef John. It was recently posted on Allrecipes.com and is to die for, especially on seafood such as fish and shrimp. Kick it up by adding garlic, herbs or chili.
- Crush capers in a small bowl with the back of a spoon.
- Melt 1/2 teaspoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat until the butter foams and is golden; saute capers until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add lemon juice, bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring frequently, until liquid is reduced by one-third, 1 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
- Stir cold butter and savory into lemon mixture, stirring constantly until butter is completely melted and sauce is shiny and thick, about 1 minute.
