Instructions grilled bell peppers with creamy tuna filling
Wash and pat dry bell peppers and put them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Roast the vegetables for about 30 minutes (flipping the peppers 2 times) in a preaheted static oven at 200 °C for about 30 minutes.
After this time take out the pan from the oven and, being careful not to burn yourself, immediately cover bell peppers with aluminum foil. After 15 minutes remove the foil, peel the peppers and remove stems and seeds. Cut your vegetables into long large slices. Dry them on a paper towel and set aside.
Rinse the salt out of the anchovies and capers and put them into a blender. Add drained tuna, cheese, breadcrumbs, mustard, balsamic vinegar and garlic. Blend everything until you get a smooth cream. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add chopped onion. Stir, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for half an hour.
Roll out the strips of bell pepper. Spread with tuna mix and gently create a roll. Use the same method until you finish all the rolls.
Season with some olive oil and serve.
