Marinated Red Pepper Salad with Anchovies

I had this salad, or a variation thereof in London at Moro’s restaurant. We sat outside, it was a warm sunny day and we enjoyed a sweet sherry with it – a superb culinary memory.


  • 6 x red bell peppers
  • Ina Paarman's Vegetable Spice
  • olive oil
  • 4 T (60 ml) Ina Paarman's Reduced Oil Greek Dressing
  • 45 g tin flat anchovy fillets
  • 2 hardboiled eggs, roughly chopped and lightly seasoned with Ina Paarman's Seasoned Sea Salt
  • ± 2 T (30 ml) caper berries
  • flat leaf parsley, chopped

Adjust oven shelf to middle position. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Bake the peppers on a rack over a roasting pan for about 20-25 minutes until blistered and blackening on the outside.

Place them in a glass mixing bowl and cover tightly with clingfilm – leave to sweat and cool down.

In the process, of cooling, the skin will loosen itself from the flesh. Pull off the blistered skin (it does not matter if a bit remains here and there). Halve the peppers. Remove the stems and seeds. Season with Vegetable Spice and drizzle with olive oil.

To serve:

Spread the peppers out flat, inside uppermost, on 4 small dinner plates. Sprinkle ± 1 T (15 ml) Dressing over. Divide the anchovies between the plates.

Sprinkle with chopped, and seasoned, hard boiled eggs and top with capers and chopped flat leaf parsley. If pre-preparing add the anchovies, eggs, capers and parsley just before presentation.
