Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a large skillet, saute mushrooms in some butter; remove them from the pan and place fish fillets in the pan with a bit more butter.
  • Add wine, salt, pepper and capers.
  • Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes (while fish is simmering, begin sauce preparation).
  • Remove fish to serving platter, top with sautéed mushrooms.
  • Keep fish warm (I put mine on a cookie sheet, cover it with foil, and keep warm in a 250 degree oven).
  • Cook remaining liquid in pan until it is reduced to ½ cup; strain and reserve ¼ cup for sauce (I like capers, so I do not strain my liquid - I just use it all and increase the flour in the sauce by about a 1/2 tablespoon).
  • For sauce, melt butter in a saucepan and stir in flour.
  • Simmer very gently for 3 minutes.
  • Stir together yolks and cream; add reserved liquid from skillet and stir into flour mixture.
  • Season to taste.
  • Add lemon juice.
  • Pour sauce over warm fish and mushrooms.
  • Garnish with lemon wedges

    This is the kind of recipe I am looking for, one that enchances the fish flavor not masks it.

    YUM, thanks for the post. This sounds perfect. I like TART, I love capers, this will be our next tilapia supper. Tilapia needs just this sauce for a boost in flavor.
