Although this recipe has a nice flavor and saves well for future use. it lacks the richness of a true picatta. I will use this in a pinch but probably not for guests. Read More

Delicious! Perfect consistency for piccata sauce over angel hair! I didn't have any artichokes but I'm sure it will be delicious with those thrown in too! Read More

Pretty Good. Needs a little more zip but I always try to follow a recipe the first time around. Chopping the capers may have taken away from their tartness... which can be a good or bad thing depending on your tastes! PERFECT consistency. I made again with no artichokes and it was delicious! From now on I will probably skip them since i rarely have them on hand! Read More

I served it over halibut and chicken. Went well with both. The family rated it differently so I gave it the average rating. It was a thicker sauce than I would have preferred. Next time I will thin it with a little white wine. I felt that wine flavour was missed but still really enjoyed this recipe! thanks Mary Elizabeth Read More
