Herb Braised Fish with Capers

fish fillets with capers on serving plate

Herb Braised Fish with Capers is a light very subtly flavored dish that has hints of wine, herbs and capers. It’s the perfect pair to squash or cauliflower rice. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, shellfish, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol diet (AIP), and paleo diets.



  1. Sprinkle the salt, thyme and rosemary over both sides of the fish.
  2. Heat oil and garlic over high heat.
  3. Next add the wine and chicken broth to the pan.
  4. Bring the liquid to a low boil then turn the heat down to medium.
  5. Add fish for 2 minutes on each side or 4 minutes total if the liquid covers the fish.
  6. Transfer the fish from the pan to a serving plate, once it’s flakey and cooked through.
  7. Add the capers to the pan.
  8. Return to a low boil and reduce the wine mixture down for about 3-4 minutes.
  9. Pour the caper sauce over the fish and then serve immediately.
  10. If using, serve with lemon wedges.
