Fried Capers

Fried Capers

Pam first noticed fried capers on salads at a favorite local restaurant we frequent.  So I poked around and found a number of different variations.  A nice one I found was from Food & Style. I thought I would play with them and make one for a salad we are having tonight.  These turn out amazing and they give you a really nice flavor for salads or other dishes.  They are also very easy to make!

Ingredients (serves 3-4 on salads)

1 tbsp Cornmeal
1/4 tsp Onion powder
1/4 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Black Pepper (adjust to taste)
1/4 cup Small capers
1 tbsp Olive oil


1. In a small bowl, mix the cornmeal, onion powder, oregano and black pepper.
2. Drain the capers in a sieve.  Then add the capers to the cornmeal mixture and mix with a fork until the capers are coated.  Placed the capers back into the sieve and shake to remove the excess cornmeal mix.
3. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to a pan and place it over medium-high heat.  When the oil is heated, add the capers and shake the pan until they are in one layer.  Lower to medium heat and saute for 3 minutes undisturbed.  Mix the capers and saute for another 2 minutes.  Transfer to a bowl (leaving any oil in the pan).
4. You can let the capers sit for up to a few hours.
