Browned red bell peppers cook to a crisp-tender texture when finished off covered. A quick toss in a vinegary sauce studded with capers produces a luscious, bright hued dish.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Cut each pepper into eight lengthwise pieces, discarding stems and seeds. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until it shimmers, then saute peppers with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper until browned in spots, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to moderately low, then add water, and cook peppers, covered, until crisp-tender, 12 to 15 minutes. If any liquid remains, remove cover and boil until evaporated.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, capers, and sugar in a large bowl. Toss hot peppers with caper sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Let cool and serve warm or at room temperature.
