    Default Capers

    Okay so... I have a very expensive little bottle of these that I forgot to
    use in the stuffed zucchini recipe. Which I won't be making again. Angela
    hated it and husband refused to try it. *sigh* Big waste because it was
    time consuming. Anyway...

    What can I do with them now? I remember once making a recipe for either egg
    salad or potato salad some years ago that called for them. Whatever it was,
    it was okay but I don't think they added anything to the dish.

    I see that they are often used in Mediterranian cooking, but I haven't a
    clue.

    Thanks!

    I always have some in a bottle in the fridge; they keep a
    very long time, so don't throw them out.

    I've forgotten whether you eat seafoods or fish. If you do,
    they are a great ingredient chopped and added to other
    chopped ingredients like gherkins, chives, onion, chili etc
    stirred into mayo as tartar sauce.

    I also add a small quantity chopped finely as a garnish
    before cooking for pizza.

    Hmmm... I could try them on pizza. I don't make that very often though.

    I've also made a tuna salad using those same ingredients in
    a plain creamy (strained) yoghurt base.

    I like them sprinkled in a salad. they add a salty piquancy to it and
    canbe used rather than or in addition to dressing. They can be dded to
    individual portions so those wh don't want them don't have to get them.

    I use them a lot, in a diced tomato sauce over baked fish, with
    anchovies, garlic and sicilian or greek olives which could be used to
    bake chicken, too, or over spaghetti squash or other pasta substitute.

    I put them on smoked salmon, too.

    They're great in chicken picata, too.

    Don't forget that sauce over veal too. That kind of sauce goes well with
    light meats in my opinion.

    I put them in tuna salad along with minced onion, diced celery, mayo and
    lemon juice.

    Also in chicken breasts sauteed with onions, mushrooms, chopped
    tomatoes, and herbs.

    My niece will eat them by the spoonful.

    Hmmm... I've never had tartar sauce but it's likely I would be allergic.
    Isn't it just like...mayo and pickles?
