Directions

  1. Crush capers in a small bowl with the back of a spoon.
  2. Melt 1/2 teaspoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat until the butter foams and is golden; saute capers until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add lemon juice, bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring frequently, until liquid is reduced by one-third, 1 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir cold butter and savory into lemon mixture, stirring constantly until butter is completely melted and sauce is shiny and thick, about 1 minute.

This is just one serving but has a crazy amount of butter and lemon. I love lemons and capers so I just tried it as a late night snack to go over gnocchi...well it was horrible I hate to say. The juice of two lemons for one serving was way overpowering. I had to redo it with some broth and herbs to make several servings. Wanted to like it but couldn't. Sorry. I usually like this chef's recipes.
