Need a perfect side dish or appetizer for tonight?
Fry up some tantalizing Cubanelle Peppers in no time for the easiest way to serve up the bounty of summer!
Last Summer, while attending an elegant dinner party at a friend’s house, I was introduced to the idea of Frying Peppers. My host told of smuggling pepper seeds back from Brazil just to be able to serve up these beauties all Summer long.
Cubanelle peppers have become so popular these days, you only have to go as far as your local farmer’s market or natural food store to find them.
Now here is the skinny on how to prepare these sweet little gems!
Once you’ve found your Cubanelles (grow them yourself if you have to), simply heat 1-2 Tbs. of canola or olive oil in a frying pan. Toss in the peppers whole and fry for 5-10 minutes. Stir regularly until the skin begins to blister golden brown on all sides.
Salt well and Serve.
It’s that easy, really, and your dinner guests will be so impressed!
