IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

An impromptu dinner: Orange Roughy with capers, shallots and wine butter sauce. Really nothing to it and yet a wonderful sauce that asks for a piece of bread to enjoy with the sauce.
A green salad with a lemon vinaigrette, a very simple dinner on Good Friday evening.
