Roasted red pepper - about this recipe
This is what I have always done when roasted bell pepper is called for, there are probably lots of other ways but it works for me.
It's a quick and easy way to skin a pepper, it leaves it slightly softened and with a smokey flavour.
- Sweet peppers - long or bell
- Gas: Turn your hottest ring on and lay 1 to 4 peppers directly onto the gas ring, leaving to burn for 30 seconds then turning (it's easier if you leave the stem on)
- Electric: Use a hotplate or griddle pan to achieve the same effect
- Barbecue Use a hotplate or griddle pan to achieve the same effect
- Once nicely burnt, remove from the heat and place in a sealable plastic container and close the lid (a clean, knotted plastic bag works just as well)
- Leave for 10 minutes
- Place on a flat surface, remove the seeds and rub the skin off
- Don't worry if you leave the the odd bit of burnt skin on - it gives it character and colour.
- You can also do this on a barbecue
Wear latex gloves if you are doing this with chili peppers.
