This is a brilliant recipe. The result pleasantly surprised me, given the simplicity of it. I didn't even use capers as I've never bought them before, but I will now and I'm looking forward to trying with them too.

Love this as an easy, quick meal. A great way to use up left over olives. I add last as my family dont like them but the do love this recipe. Also like with a nice cold glass of white wine!

Made this recipe as a sunny lunchtime meal to eat in the garden, it was lovely. Served it with a small side salad and a glass of white wine!
