Very good. I didn't use butter sprinkles, I just added melted butter to the recipe.
O' my!!! Hubby loves capers and anything lemony.... this is a perfect recipe!!! Very very good!
I really like capers, so I had to try this recipe. It was very good! I've never heard of butter-flavored sprinkles so I used a tablespoon of butter -- the sauce was very silky. My entire family gave this recipe two thumbs up! I served it with aspargus, brown rice and mushrooms. Yummy dinner.
Even my picky small children loved this, sauce and all!
what are butter-flavored sprinkles?
