Lemon Caper Sauce

One of my favorite sauces that I use either on fish or chicken and is, tart, salty, and full of lemon. Add some fresh chopped parsley and this sauce is exquisite. This sauce is not an over-cooked sauce and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. I always keep a jar of capers in my refrigerator, knowing I may have to make this sauce for a last-minute dinner.

You can try a version without the garlic, or try other fresh herbs like coriander (cilantro), tarragon, dill, and fresh mint. You can also add a tablespoon of white wine.
