This was a great little recipe - simple, tasty and out of the ordinary - something a true foodie can appreciate. I pared this with salmon steaks for an evening with the wife while the kids were out - it was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this recipe - it makes even the most inept cook appear better then you they truly are. All this being said, I'd be pleasantly surprised were this included in my meal at any of the many Zagat's top rated restaurants in my area. Thanks

I would have never thought to add capers to asparagus. What a great flavor combination. I'm always looking for different ways to perk up my vegetable dish and this certainly is a winner. Thanks so much for sharing, Sugarpea. You always have such great recipes.

it was ok but i like asparagus with lemon and garlic better. were the capers supposed to be crispy? mine never crisped. they just got oily and hot... maybe i did something wrong. like i said though, the flavor was ok.

I first encountered fried capers at a restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona. They were the surprise ingredient in an otherwise unsurprising grilled chicken salad. I immediately went home and figured out how to do it - easy! Thanks for another way to use them. Yummmm...

This was soooo good!! The asperagus and fried capers made a great combination. It was easy to make. I had leftovers which I reheated in the microwave oven for about 1 1/2 minutes. They came out good too. I don't think I would reheat them any longer than that. Just enough to make them warm without changing the texture of them. Thanks for a great recipe Sugarpea!!! It is definitely a keeper!!
