Note: You can blacken the peppers by placing them directly on a flame, or on a barbecue, or under the broiler.

Step 1

Blacken the peppers.

Step 2

Once blackened all over, allow to steam in a covered bowl for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Peel and deseed. Don't wash the skins off under running water as you will lose a little of the fantastic sweetness that you've created by blackening them.

Step 4

Cut or tear each pepper into around 8 strips and place them in a bowl.

Step 5

Add the garlic, chillies, coriander seeds and olive oil to the peppers with a good splash of red wine vinegar.

Step 6

The key is to season well to taste.

Step 7

Toss this and, ideally, allow to sit for an hour, tossing occasionally, before ripping in your basil and serving.
