When it comes to the old school classics, there are only so many variations you can make. For this recipe, I pretty much stuck to the basics of any piccata recipe; lemon, parsley, capers, and some olive oil. If you wanted to, you could easily forget the flour and swap in a piece of white fish to make this dish even lighter as the warmer weather comes our way. Remember...these recipes are great guidelines in the kitchen, but the real fun comes in when you add your own creative twists!! Enjoy!
