Main Course: Easy Grilled Peppers

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon brine from an olive jar or ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 peppers, any colour

Directions for Preparation

  1. In a large, clean plastic bag toss in everything except the peppers.
  2. Wash the peppers. Cut the tops off, then remove the seeds.
  3. Cut each pepper into 4 pieces.
  4. Add the peppers in the plastic bag, close and shake until each piece is well - coated.
  5. Place peppers skin side down on hot grill, until skin blisters and peppers soften (3-8 minutes depending on the grill).
  6. Turn peppers and grill until inner side is done (about 2-4 minutes).

These peppers go very nicely with any grilled meat or fish. Double the batch and save the leftovers to toss in a salad or as a filling in a sandwich.
