i added some to a turkey meat loaf that i made for my family for lunch today at about 2am.(i couldn't sleep last night).

in the turkey meatloaf was diced red onion, red bell pepper, and garlic browned in evoo, then mixed with 4 cubed slices of nutty/seeded bread, 2 eggs, chopped sundried tomatoes, 3 tbsps of capers, and a pound or so of ground turkey.
it was formed into a loaf and put in an oiled baking dish, the top was coated with maille wholegrain dijon, and it was baked for 45 minutes at 350.

Chicken Picatta was my first thought as well. Next thought - Caponata or ceviche.

michael and pdswife- I forgot to mention it, but the only meat I eat is fish and seafood. Nice idea though! And actually, I did a search on google for "fish piccatta" just to see if it was possible and found a few recipes! Go figure...

ironchef- That recipe sounds really nice and fresh. I love tomato on fish - definitely have to try this. Thanks!

RDG- the capers I have are in brine, not salt. Would the briny ones work with your recipes?

Jmediger- pasta salad... that sounds nice!

Gretchen- ohhh... i like the bruscetta idea. And lox and cream cheese... yum. That's one of my favourite brunch items.

Poppinfresh- That's a neat idea to put it in mashed potatoes.. I bet it could be good on a baked potato as well with some sour cream...

GB- Good to know that capers go well with fish.. I eat a lot of fish so maybe I'll add some in to the sauces I make with it.

Erik- That's a good idea... I bet it adds a nice, subtle flavour to the mayo.

Bucky- As I mentioned to pdswife and michael, I only eat fish/seafood - so turkey meatloaf is out! However, I do make a really nice vegetarian "meatloaf" using soya "ground hamburger" - I always add in onions, but putting in some peppers and capers is a great idea. I will have to try that.

mish- What is caponata?

slice garlic, saute in olive oil, add capers and fresh herbs, add favorite cooked pasta, Serve with parmesan or Romano cheese. very simple and tasty.

capers are also an ingredient of putanesca sauce...olive oil, capers anchovies olives, crushed tomato, onion and garlic. leave out the panceta (bacon) if you wish. serve over linguini

IN America, most capers come brined (often with a touch of vinegar) rinse well. One can find the salt cured capers and anchovies at fine Italian delis and markets and buy the amount you need.

Actually, the first time we had piccatta, it was made with Sole filets and it was absoluted devine. I guess it's not truely piccatta because the fish wasn't floured before it was done but it it was finished with a piccatta sauce. Again, wonderful!

Salmon with a lemon/butter/caper sauce or a lime/butter/caper sauce

Top your Alfredo sauce with them

A spin-off on Alfredo is still make the sauce but add chopped sun-dried tomatoes but don't rinse the oil off, and capers

Smoked salmon with a spread of cream cheese, red onion, capers, and some of the vinegar.

Someone already mentioned the bruschetta - boy is that good!
