  • 3 red peppers
  • 2 small garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
  • Salt


1 Preheat the grill to high. Place the red peppers on a baking sheet and grill for 8-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the skins have blistered and blackened. Remove the peppers from the heat, cover with a clean dish towel and leave to stand for 5 minutes so that the steam softens the skins and makes them easy to peel.

2 Make a small cut in the bottom of each pepper and squeeze out the juice into a jug and reserve for later use Peel away the skin and cut each pepper in half. Remove and discard the cores and scrape out the seeds. Place the peppers on a cutting board.


3 Using a sharp knife, cut each halved pepper lengthways into 1/2 in (1 cm) wide strips and place them in a small bowl.

4 Whisk the garlic, parsley, vinegar and oil into the pepper juices. Add salt to taste. Toss with the strips. Serve at room temperature.
