  • 3 medium peppers (nicely formed)
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Heat your pan grill (or barbecue), keep the heat fairly high, place the peppers on top and continue to cook, turning until burnt all over. 
  • Remove from heat and place in a paper bag or bowl and cover with plastic, let sit for 15-20 minutes.
  • Clean the peppers, slice in half, remove seeds and skin and cut into thin strips, (don't rinse peppers under water, hands yes, peppers no). 
  • Place pepper strips in a medium bowl, add garlic, Italian parsley, olive oil and salt, toss gently until combined. Let sit 30-60 minutes for flavours to mingle. Serve with fresh Italian bread or bruschetta. Buon Appetito!
