Friggitelli PeppersThe friggitelli pepper is a wonderful small green pepper common in Southern Italy. Despite appearences, it’s not spicy, but full of flavour with a touch of sweetness. “Friggitelli” means “for frying” and we won’t argue with that! They are particularly delicious fried until soft and then sprinkled with sea salt and when stuffed will make a great antipasti . . .

Ingredients for Stuffed Friggitelli Peppers

12 Friggitelli
6 Anchovy Fillets
1 Bunch of Parsley, Minced
1 tbsp Capers in Salt
1 Clove of Garlic
8 tbsp Breadcrumbs
Zest of Half a Lemon
Olive Oil for Frying
Salt and Pepper
Ground Chilli

How to make Stuffed Friggitelli Peppers

  • Mince the parsley, garlic and lemon zest together.
  • Mix in the capers (rinsed and finely chopped), breadcrumbs, and anchovy fillets (chopped).
  • If you like, you can add some ground chillies to the mix, to spice it up.
  • Wash the peppers, dry them with a cloth, and make a slit down each to extract the seeds and ribs.
  • Fill the peppers with the stuffing and press the lips of the cut back into place.
  • Heat enough oil to almost cover the peppers in a non-stick pot. When it’s hot fry them, with the cut side facing up, for about 5 minutes.
  • Drain them well on absorbent paper, salt them lightly, and serve hot.
