GOYA® Capers are the closed flower bud of the “Capparis Spinosa”, a wild, thorny plant originally from the countries which make up the Mediterranean arch. Their flavor and aroma, along with their nutritional value make our Capers an essential ingredient for tartar sauce and a unique condiment for stews and salads.

Tasting and food pairings
GOYA® Capers are a basic ingredient in Mediterranean cooking, and their organoleptic properties, intense flavor, texture and coloration allow for countless culinary uses.
GOYA® Capers are a perfect garnish for entrées and fish (primarily fresh and smoked salmon). Likewise, they combine well with chicken, pasta and vegetables (especially artichokes and cauliflower), and are the ideal addition to complement salads, and an essential ingredient for tapenade.

The harvesting of GOYA® Capers is carried out by hand between the end of Spring and the beginning of s ummer. During the preparation and packaging process, from Goya Spain we subject the capers to strict inspections at the source, Morocco, recognized world-wide for the quality of its capers, before they are packaged in Spain. Goya Spain only packages the sizes that lend more quality, with the following commercial names:
Capotes Capers (between 9 and 11 millimeters in diameter) and Nonpareils Capers (up to 7 millimeters). The younger the flower, the smaller it is, and the more texture and taste it will have.
Capers are made up of water and carbohydrates. With hardly any fat, their caloric content is minimal. Specifically, 3.5 ounces (100 grams) of GOYA® Capers contain just 36 calories, which makes them a light condiment, suitable for low-calorie diets.
The base of the carpaccio is the finely sliced beef, eaten raw but seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.
The carpaccio can be eaten on its own, but it is also delicious on toasted bread, therefore we can serve it at the table with a basket of crispy breads.
The capers give extra flavor to this cream cheese and smoked salmon bagel, making it the perfect option for a snack or light dinner.
