A couple of weeks ago I headed out for a fancy dinner with my housemates. One of the dishes we had was a buffalo mozzarella salad served with one of the best dressings I think I have ever had – smoky balsamic reduction. This got me craving other smoky flavours.
Since the fancy dinner with the amazing smoky balsamic I have kept up the smokiness by experimenting with campfire cooking, including making char grilled capsicum.
I am not usually a big fan of capsicum, but a sweet orange capsicum grilled on a campfire is surprisingly tasty.
Ingredient: 1 capsicum
Equipment: chopping board, knife, campfire, wire rack
- Build your campfire and place the wire rack over the fire. Pierce the capsicum with a fork and put on the wire rack to grill until black.
- Scrape off the burnt outer of the capsicum, remove the centre and slice.
