Cool Favorite recipe using capers?

Any favorite ways to use capers? I just bought a bottle because my DF (dear fiance) loves them. Hes on his way back from Afghanistan and I wanted to cook him something special...any suggestions?

My wife has made that before...great dish but one time she forgot to rinse the brine off the capers and the dish was just a *wee* bit on the salty side.

I've also had soft shell crab with capers at a restaurant before...excellent dish.

I love making pasta with a simple sauce of a combination of any of the following: EVOO, garlic, capers, lemon, sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and anything else I have on hand that might work.

Do not forget Chicken or Veal picatta (sp?).

I love capers on pizza.

But, the othe day I stuffed squid with a mixture of bread crumbs, white wine parsely, garlic, tiny bit of cheese, and capers (think thats all but I can check recipe if anyone is interested....

carrots tossed in cremefraiche, yoghurt or even sour cream with dill and capers make a fantastic side dish.

In addition to some of the above, I sprinkle them on green salads and sometimes risotto.

Wow, check this out: Capers Recipes

HTH.

Send a message via Yahoo to ChefJune
the minute I saw this thread title my mind went to "Veal Piccata!" (also Chicken Piccata!

They're indispensible in Ratatouille, too, and also Tapenade... I just love them and use them at almost any occasion.

Puttanesca (linguine with capers, black olives, anchovies) or a bagel with cream cheese, slice of tomato, smoked salmon, capers and red onion.

I have used them in a martini when I was out of olives too.
