2 tablespoons of fried capers
- 1⁄3 cup olive oil
- 2 to 3 tablespoons capers, rinsed and dried
Rinse off 2 or 3 tablespoons of capers and dry them on a paper towel.
Add 1/3 cup olive oil and all of your capers to a microwave-safe bowl. Make sure the capers are covered by the oil.
Cover bowl with a paper towel, unless you like caper explosions.
Microwave for about 2 minutes, remove from microwave and stir.
Microwave another 2 minutes and then remove from the microwave. Strain the capers with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate. The capers will continue to fry if you leave them in the oil.
You can fry fewer capers if you want. Just know that if you reduce the number of capers or reduce the amount of oil, your capers will fry MUCH faster.
