In a word, outstanding. I swear these potatoes even outshined the grilled Porterhouse steaks we served with them! Who would have ever thought that such a simple but unique blend of ingredients could make a potato taste this special? I used regular Yukon Gold potatoes and fresh chives intead of green onion, neither of which would really change the outcome. Other than that, I prepared these exactly as the recipe directs, and will do so in the future. This recipe is perfect as written. Creamy, flavorful, but with no, one dominant spice or flavor hitting your taste buds. Pretty too! Simple but extraordinary. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This simple mix of ingredients deserves 10 stars. Amazing flavor! I wasn't expecting much, but after mixing it all together and tasting it, the potatoes were divine. Use good quality parmesan (not the stuff in the green can!). I've since used this sauce on baked fish or drizzle it over grilled fish and chicken. This caper sauce is so versatile but it's especially good with white fish (halibut, tilapia, cod, sole). TIP- unless your new potatoes are really small, I would definitely cut the potatoes into chunks. The cut-up potatoes releases it's starches and creates a nice thick, creamy sauce once mixed with the caper sauce. The spuds also absorbs the sauce better this way.

We rarely rate things 5 stars but when you are ooohhing and ahhhing while eating something it deserves it. Wow! We absolutely enjoyed this. Even though we were using baby new potatoes we still cut them in half after cooking to maximaize the ingredients soaking into the potatoes. Also, we melted the butter with all the ingredients except the parm, added the potatoes to the warm butter mixture, sprinkled in the parm and then mixed it all together. Holy Moly were these good! Very fresh and rich. Also, only used 1/4 of butter due to diet restriction and they were still perfect! Thanks for the recipe! Will make again and again.
