Dijon caper white fish the simplest fish you can make and full of flavor. I feel like most people can be intimidated with cooking fish but I find when you keep it simple the easier it is. The more to try and practice cooking fish the better you get.
What is a caper? The caper bush, also known as Capparis spinosa, is a type of plant native to the Mediterranean that has rounded leaves and flowers that range in color from white to pink. It also produces the caper berry, a fruit that is often consumed pickled, as well as an edible flower bud known as the caper, which is generally used as a seasoning and garnish.
Capers have some great nutrients as well from vitamin k, fiber and sodium. Personally I love them and call them one of my flavor bombs. Hence adding them to a dish adds so much flavor.
For the fish I love halibut or cod and unless you get it fresh off the dock. Buy it frozen and defrost it before cooking. Wild caught is best but whatever is in your budget works great too just make sure it does not smell fishy.
For this dish all you need is capers, dijon mustard, fresh parsley, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven at 400’f and dinner is ready in 10-12 minutes. I love to serve this fish with wild rice and roasted veggies.
Happy Cooking XOXO
