Caper Sauce for Fish


  • 1/2 pint of melted butter
  • 3 dessertspoonfuls of capers
  • 1 dessertspoonful of their liquor
  • small piece of glaze, if at hand (this may be dispensed with)
  • 1/4 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoonful of pepper
  • 1 tablespoonful of anchovy essence


Cut the capers across once or twice, but do not chop them fine; put them in a saucepan with 1/2 pint of good melted butter, and add all the other ingredients. Keep stirring the whole until it just simmers, when it is ready to serve.

Time: 1 minute to simmer.

Sufficient to serve with a skate, or 2 or 3 slices of salmon.
