I loove salty foods. When given the choice between sweet and salty, I'll take salty any day. Maybe that is one reason why I adore capers.
Capers come from the capparis spinosa plant. They are the flower buds of this plant, (also known as caper bush or Flinders rose), which is native to the Mediterranean.
These flavor bombs are one of foods listed in the 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die book by Mimi Sheraton. It is also the #5 item on my quest to try each of the 1,000 foods listed in this incredible book.
These little green flower buds deliver HUGE flavor, similar to olives. They are delightful in pasta dishes, and absolutely essential in the sandwich featured in this post. You can buy organic capers non-pareil from Amazon here, or at your local grocery store.
The Alaskan Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese, and Capers Bagel (similar to a lox sandwich) is absolutely delicious! I'm very much craving one now as I write this! The sandwich also features red onion, dill, and a squeeze of lemon to make it just perfect.
There are few better ways to enjoy capers than in this Alaskan Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese, and Capers Bagel. I hope you will enjoy this dish, featuring one of the foods on my 1,000 Foods to Eat Project, inspired by the 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die book by Mimi Sheraton.
