Very lemony, so next time I will be cutting lemon juice at least in half and compensating with butter. But the flavor of the sauteed carpers in the butter sauce was amazing!
This is just one serving but has a crazy amount of butter and lemon. I love lemons and capers so I just tried it as a late night snack to go over gnocchi...well it was horrible I hate to say. The juice of two lemons for one serving was way overpowering. I had to redo it with some broth and herbs to make several servings. Wanted to like it but couldn't. Sorry. I usually like this chef's recipes.
Waaaaayyyyyy too much lemon! Cut lemon in half or more. Otherwise, simple to make.
I thought this had about the right balance between butter and lemon juice, and the capers added nice undertone to the thing.
Mine was way too salty. Tried doctoring to no avail. I have reread the recipe and am perplexed. Everyone else found the sauce to lemony - that wasn't my problem. I love capers, lemon and butter and yet this was a total failure.
Way too lemony for my taste.
A wee bit to lemony for me, but love the capers so did enjoy it. Will cut back on the lemon next time...
Wow, way too lemony. I don't mind lots of butter but it was too tangy for my taste but my bf liked it. I think next time I will mix some sour cream in it for a milder flavor.
