Spicy Caper Sauce for Fish

This zesty sauce is easy to make and can be used to dress up steamed, broiled, baked or grilled fish. You can find bottled onion juice in most grocery stores with the condiments and pickles, or in a specialty or gourmet shop. If you can't find it, you can substitute 1 teaspoon finely minced onion, which will also add more texture to the sauce. If using capers packed in brine, make sure to rinse them well first.

2 Tbs butter
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
Red or cayenne pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups boiling water OR hot vegetable stock
1 tsp onion juice OR 1 tsp finely minced onion
1/2 cup capers

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then whisk in flour until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the capers and whisk together. Continue to cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly to prevent sticking (I use a whisk), until sauce is thick. Remove from heat, stir in capers, and spoon over cooked fish.

Zestfully yours,
