Sicilian Caper, Basil and Tomato Salsa

Although traditionally enjoyed with grilled mackerel, this is a truly delightful mixture that can stand on its own; the flavors are perfect together.

Serves 4


2 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
2 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
¼ cup capers, chopped
5 fresh basil leaves, chopped
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Course sea salt
Cracked pepper


Gently mix together all ingredients. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and gently mix again. Let stand at least a half an hour before serving. Serve at room temperature over grilled fish with lemon wedges.
