How to Roast and Peel Bell Peppers
A quick video that will demonstrate how to roast and peel a bell pepper.
Technique at a Glance
Roast bell peppers over an open flame or hot grill until the skin is charred black. Do not rush this process; the biggest mistake that most people make when roasting bell peppers before peeling is under roasting. A propane or MAP gas torch will also work.
Remove charred peppers from flame, place in an appropriate sized container, cover with plastic wrap and allow to steam for 10 minutes.
After steaming period, remove charred skin by rubbing the exterior of the bell pepper with a lint free towel.
Seed and julienne.
Roasted and peeled bell peppers are great on pizza, sandwiches, hamburgers, mixed into pasta dishes and served on antipasto platters.
