Piccata Sauce ... where lemon juice and capers add zest!

Serves 4      Preparation:  10 min.     Cooking: 10 min.        Total: 20 min.

Piccata sauce is a very simple, light creation that takes only a few ingredients and goes together quickly. It can be added to almost any kind of thinly sliced meat, ideally about 1/4 inch thick. If you can't buy it this way, it is easy to pound it between sheets of plastic wrap or in a plastic zipper bag. Fish fillets, shrimp, and scallops work well, too.


  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced.
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 Cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp capers, with juice.

In a saucepan, saute garlic in butter until transparent. Add olive oil and flour making a paste. Cook, stirring, until golden brown.

Add chicken broth a little at a time, and then add lemon juice. Stir over medium heat until thickened.

Add capers with juice.

Serve over chicken, pork, or seafood.
