deep fried capers
I had these recently in a restaurant in Lake Chelan...They are so good! They add little flavor bursts to your salad....it took me a couple of minutes to figure out what the heck they were. I had never heard of doing this.
What a surprise topping. The holidays here and it is time for holiday party's. This can be made ahead of time.
heat 1 cup of vegetable oil in a fry pan , heat to 375...or better yet use your deep fryer...These just take about 1 minute to deep fry...Take about a cup of capers and pat them dry....add about 1/2 cup to the oil at a time...
this screen is very helpful to avoid splattering....drain on paper towels...They puff up like popcorn or little flowers....very cute!
assemble the salad....oh yeah the Parmesan crisps....
shred Parmesan Reggiano and place baseball size of them on a silpat or parchment paper on a baking sheet...bake for 8 minutes in 400 degree oven until nicely brown...They really spread out.
and there you have it! Surprise your guests with a great Caesar salad full of unexpected pickily flavor and fun!
Cheers to Happy !!
