This is one of those effortless recipes requiring just a few fresh, high quality ingredients and very little labor. This side is great year round served with grilled meat, seared fish or just thrown into a fresh salad, it's hard to go wrong with fresh produce, lemon and a little anchovy. And of course, if is too still too frigid to get out to the grill, throw your peppers in a hot pan or under the broiler to get a crisp char. —Shell
