Eggplant Caponata

Eggplant Caponata is an Italian favorite.  You can enjoy as a side to any dish but I love to grill a piece of white fish and set on top and eat together!  You can also serve over spaghetti squash or your favorite pasta!  This Italian Paleo Recipe is perfect.

Caponata Is an Italian (Sicilian recipe) dish consisting of eggplant, celery then seasoned with vinegar and capers.

Numerous local variations of the ingredients exist with some versions adding olives, carrots and green bell peppers, zucchini or summer squash.

Caponata is typically used as a side dish for fish dishes and sometimes as an appetizer, but since the 1700s it has also been prepared as a main course.
