- Heat gas or charcoal gill. Place bell peppers on grill over medium-high heat. Cook 10 to 13 minutes, turning every 3 to 4 minutes, until all sides are blistered and charred.
- Place peppers in brown paper bag: fold down top. Let stand 5 minutes.
- Carefully peel as much skin from peppers as possible. Cut in half lengthwise; remove stems, seeds and ribs. Sprinkle with salt.
