Step 1 — Slice the radicchio into wedges about an inch thick and lay out on a sheet pan.
Step 2 — Turn your oven’s broiler to high; roast the radicchio under the broiler until charred, roughly 5-10 minutes depending on your oven.
Step 3 — Remove radicchio from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Add capers to the sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil; set under broiler for 2-5 minutes, until they start to brown and crisp.
Step 4 — Meanwhile, coarsely chop radicchio and transfer to a mixing bowl.
Step 5 — Add roasted capers to the mixing bowl.
Step 6 — Using a vegetable peeler (or grater), shave strips of parmesan directly into the mixing bowl.
Step 7 — Drizzle with olive oil and the vinegar and mix well; season with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 8 — To serve, transfer to a serving bowl and, using a zester or microplane, finely shave more parmesan over the top.
