Grilled Peppers

Peppers may be either oven roasted or grilled, the choice being a matter of personal preference : roasting is longer, but yields peppers that are more fully cooked hence easier to digest and to purée than if they are grilled. Grilling is quicker and yields firmer peppers.

6 yellow or red sweet peppers 1.2 kg
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 30 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Only red and yellow peppers are used in this recipe. They are harvested from the same plant as the green ones but are plumper and sweeter after changing colour since they are picked when fully ripe.


  1. Cut the peppers in half or quarters, removing the seeds and the stalks, then put them on an oiled baking sheet, turning them to coat thoroughly with oil.
  2. Put the sheet under a preheated broiler 7-10 cm from the heat, and cook 5-6 min turning the peppers once, until they are soft and browned in spots. Alternatively, arrange the peppers on the hot grill, and cook them until golden-brown, turning once.
  3. Peppers should be peeled before serving. To ease this operation, cover or wrap the peppers in aluminum foil or in a paper bag, and let cool down a few minutes (the moisture kept under the cover will help lift the peel).
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste just before serving. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, then serve.
