DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil to 365-75* F in a medium saucepan.
  • If you haven't a thermometer, this is hot but definitely not smoking.
  • Lower the capers, (I use a Chinese deep frying wire utensil) a few at a time, into the oil and fry until they suddenly pop open and look like little flower buds.
  • Let them cook for a couple of seconds, remove, and drain on paper towels.
  • Salt, sparingly, since they are salty already.
  • Serve.
