Fresh Fish Piccata Print Recipe

Serves 4 • Ready in 20min


  • 1 Lb. Fresh Fish – ocean perch, hake or sole are all great
  • 2-3 Tbs. LeRoux Olive Oil
  • ½ Cup Arborio Rice Flour – freshly milled and pretty coarse
  • Grated Peel of 1 Lemon
  • ¼ Cup Dry White Wine
  • Juice of 2 Lemons
  • 2 Tbsp. Capers
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Butter
  • Kosher Salt, to taste
  • Freshly Cracked Black Pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. Freshly Chopped Parsley


  1. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan.
  2. Pat fish fillets dry and dredge lightly in the rice flour.
  3. Fry until fish develops a nice color on both sides and is cooked through – 3 minutes per side is a good guess for time – place on a serving platter or individual plates – place in a warm oven if making more fish.
  4. Deglaze pan with white wine.
  5. Add lemon juice, lemon peel and capers, whisk together and then add butter, whisking constantly until creamy – add parsley.
  6. Pour over hot fish and serve.
