DIRECTIONS

  • Prick the chillies all over with a small sharp knife, and put them and the pepper directly over the flame of your hob, in a dry griddle pan or under a hot grill. You need to blacken them all over ( obviously the pepper will take longer than the chillies).
  • When they are blistered and black, and look ruined, pop them into a sandwich bag or a bowl covered with cling film to steam the skin off.
  • After about ten minutes peel away the skins, deseed them, and chop them fine. Stir into the mayo with a touch of sea salt and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • Toss the meat with a good pinch of salt, pepper and the cayenne. Get two bowls, and put the buttermilk in one and the flour in the other.
  • Toss the meat into the flour, shake off the excess, then dip into the buttermilk, then back into the flour.
  • Pour the oil into a large pan or wok and heat until it reaches 180 degrees ( be careful!).
  • Cook the meat in batches and fry for about 3-4 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon drain on kitchen towel and sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Serve with the aioli and a cold beer!
