Creamy Spicy Capers Sauce

This capers sauce is to die for and it’s perfect with fish.  It’s creamy and light, spicy, salty, fresh and zingy.  Proper etiquette is the only thing holding me back from lapping this stuff up like a dog.

Oh my goodness, it’s so simple too.

In a large mixing bowl, add the Greek strained plain non-fat yogurt, water, and mayo.

Mince some capers.  Measure a generous teaspoon worth and add it to the bowl.

Add the juice of one lime.  If it’s a bigger, juicer lime reserve some and adjust to taste after mixing up all the ingredients.

Add the kosher salt.

If you have oregano in your herb garden go snatch some, rinse it, pull off the little leaves and give them a mince.  Add ½ teaspoon worth to the bowl.  Or just add a ½ teaspoon of dried if you don’t have fresh oregano.

And lastly add the dried ground cumin, dried dill and ground cayenne pepper.

Whisk it all up.  Give it a taste and adjust flavors if necessary.

This sauce is best if it melds in the fridge for like a day.

    This is really good! We made your fish tacos with this sauce and it was excellent!

    We were planning on making fish tacos for dinner and then I saw this sauce so we gave it a shot. To be honest, I didn’t measure anything just eyeballed it but used every ingredient called for and it was delish! Don’t skimp on the water or juice though. My sauce came out a little thick but was remedied with some water. With the leftovers, I sauced some veggie wraps and some chicken tostadas. Very good. Wondering if you could use this for a dressing on a salad?

    • Dear Miss Lisa,

      If you think it… you can do it. It’s a new universal law. ;) No really… I was trying to figure out other uses for the sauce too. Please share what you like it with the best.
