Fried Capers
Yields: ½ cup
  • 4 cups canola oil
  • ½ cup capers, rinsed and well drained
  1. In a large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350°. Place capers on a double layer of paper towels. Pat dry with additional paper towels, and let rest for 30 minutes to absorb any remaining liquid. Gently add capers to oil; fry until they puff and become light and flaky, about 2 minutes. Let drain on paper towels, and serve warm.
