  1. Pour enough oil into a medium pot so that the oil comes 3 inches up the sides. heat the oil to 350°F (175°C).
  2. While the oil is heating, whisk together the garlic, anchovies, serrano chile, red wine vinegar, honey, scallions, walnuts, and extra-virgin olive oil in a bowl large enough to toss all the Brussels sprouts. Keep the bowl near the stovetop.
  3. Working in batches, deep-fry the Brussels sprouts until the edges begin to curl and brown, about 3 minutes. To the last batch, add the parsley and capers. (Stand back—the capers will pop and sputter!) Give the contents of the pot a stir. When the color of the parsley becomes a deeper, more saturated shade of green, about 1/2 to 1 minute, remove the contents of the pot with a skimmer and place directly into the bowl of dressing. Toss to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
