These should come with a warning label, so consider this as such. These are addicting. Very addicting. You may make them with the intent to use them to spruce up a salad, or to top a pasta or grilled fish or chicken dish, but take caution: these have only made it onto a dish once when I have made them. Every other time I eat every single one before they can make it anywhere other than a paper towel straight out of the pan. I can’t help it! They are a perfect combination of delicately crispy and salty.

If you’re already a caper fan, you’ll go nuts for these. If you’re on the fence about capers, this might just be the trick to win you over. Either way, these are crispy and briny and add the perfect punch of flavor to so many dishes. Plus they only take seconds to make! Now you have no excuses.

Fried Capers


Any amount of capers you like (2 tbsp-1/3 cup)
1/2 cup olive oil


Drain the capers and pat them dry on a paper towel. Next, heat the olive oil in a small saucepan. Once the oil is hot, fry the capers in small batches until they crisp up and open like flowers. Drain fried capers on a paper towel and repeat until all of the capers are fried.
