Red Bell Pepper Tapas

READY IN: 2hrs




  • Adjust broiler rack to within a 4 inches of heat source.
  • Cover broiler pan with foil and preheat broiler.
  • Place peppers on hot foil.
  • Broil for 15-20 minutes, turning each pepper every 5 minutes until skin is blackened.
  • Remove peppers from broiler and place in a brown paper bag.
  • Roll top of bag down and set aside for 15 minutes, this steams the skins which makes removing the skin easier.
  • Peel peppers by cutting around the stem and twisting it, halve peppers and peel the skin back with a knife.
  • Rinse peppers with cold water and remove seeds.
  • Slice pepper halves lengthwise into 1/4 inch strips.
  • Place pepper strips into a jar.
  • Add oregano, garlic and oil.
  • Close the lid and shake to blend.
  • Allow to marinate an hour.
  • We like this served with garlic bread.
  • This will keep one week in the refrigerater in jar.
  • I haven't tried letting it marinate that long but I bet it would be great.
  • Cooking time includes steaming and marinating time.
