Curiosity

The etymology of the word, relating to the Spanish “Caponada”, originates from the popular way of calling the Dorado fish as “Capone” in some areas of Sicily. This fish was served to the local aristocracy with the sweet sower sauce typical base of the Caponata. The population, unable to afford the expensive fish, substituted it with the cheaper eggplants, originating this recipe that has reached our days.
