Our Lemon-Capers Fish Fillets combine lemon juice and the tangy flavor of capers to add just the right amount of “wow” to this easy dinner recipe!

What You’ll Need

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 4 (6-ounce) white-fleshed fish fillets (like cod or haddock)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives

What to Do

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, shallot, capers, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; set aside.
  2. Coat a grill pan or skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fish with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Place fish in pan and cook about 4 minutes per side or until it flakes easily with a fork. Spoon lemon juice mixture over fish, sprinkle with chives, and serve.

Test Kitchen Tip!

  • For a change of pace, we used fresh shallots in the sauce. If you’re not familiar with them, think of shallots as a cross between garlic and onion. If you don’t have any, no problem; a chopped onion will do the trick.
