Turkish Sweet and Sour Peppers Recipe – Gordon Ramsay’s version

Turkish Sweet and Sour Peppers Recipe

A tasty recipe, learned from a friend of Turkish origin. Basically, it would be a recipe similar to the Sicilian one, with the variant of adding coarsely chopped dried fruit and dried fruit. For these last ingredients I used cashews and dehydrated blueberries, while for the sweet and sour tone I used honey and apple cider vinegar. Then the abundant basil gives the magical touch that makes this simple dish the queen of a buffet, a cold dinner or a simple appetizer. Seeing is believing !

Wash the peppers well, dry them

Clean the peppers removing also and above all the white nerves inside, and all the seeds

Cut the peppers into strips and put them in a pan, salt and pepper to taste

Start cooking with a covered pan, and halfway through cooking, add the cashews, blueberries, dried basil and if you want the dry mixture for spagnetta which is based on parsley, garlic and chilli, or as an alternative to the latter mixture of spices you can only put chilli. Mix everything, and continue cooking, always with the pan covered.

Almost at the end of cooking, add the previously prepared mixture of apple cider vinegar and honey and let it evaporate with the pan uncovered, then add the chopped fresh basil, stir and turn off the heat. Before serving, leave the peppers to rest with the pan off for 5 minutes.

Put the peppers in a serving dish, decorate with a sprig of fresh basil and serve.

They are also good served at room temperature or even cold.

Serve cold and decorated with sprigs of fresh basil, accompanied by warm croutons and a good prosecco

My name is Francesca and I am 51 years old and I am a mother of two boys and guardian of two other boys (my grandchildren). I worked for 30 years in a bakery and I cultivated a love for good food and Sicilian traditions in the kitchen. The large family "forced" me to take action to cook for many people, also trying to follow an economic line that would satisfy everyone by spending as little as possible (as a good housewife and mother of a family) while trying to maintain taste and quality.
