  • Yield: ---


  • 1/4 stick Butter
  • Flour (less than 1/4 cup)
  • Water
  • Fish Broth
  • Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Capers
  • 2 to 3 tsp Caper Juice
  • half glass of dry White Wine
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste


In a deep sauce pan prepare the white sauce using a quarter stick of butter and melt under low heat. Add flour(less than 1/4 cup) and stir until all the flour is absorbed by the butter, stirring constantly. Be careful not to let the butter burn. Now add a little water and continue to stir. Add slowly more water and stir until the sauce becomes a thick mixture (there should be no lumps and hold the consistency of thin dough), then add the fish broth until the sauce has a creamy consistency. Now add the juice of half a lemon, about a quarter cup of capers, including two or three tsp of the caper juice, a half glass of dry white wine, and salt and pepper to taste.
