No. 2 : Kitchen SCOOP

This sauce ROCKS when enjoyed with anything off the grill. Chicken, beef, pork, fish, mushrooms, potatoes – you name it – this sauce just makes it taste better. When preparing your protein, make sure to season it simply. Just brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle on a little salt and pepper. In the photo to the right, we grilled salmon and whole red peppers. When done, we peeled and sliced the red peppers and topped the salmon with them, scooping on the Spanish almond caper sauce and then sprinkling the fish with parsley. Or do the same with grape tomatoes by grilling them briefly and adding them to the mix. A beautiful and colorful one dish dinner 🐟

No. 3 : Clever Idea

Don’t be afraid to add the anchovies to the sauce, and yes! the entire tin. When you pulse them they fall apart and add a delicious briny flavor – no one will suspect its from anchovies.
