These are something I remember vividly from my grandmother’s kitchen. We’d place them in a sandwich of fresh deli turkey and semolina bread with a touch of mayo, salt, and pepper – delicious. (Though the lack of good semolina bread around here makes me want to cry.)
Italian Fried Peppers
1 pound Italian peppers, cut into strips (the peppers are long, thin and light green)
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt & pepper to taste
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the peppers and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring until it softens, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve warm, at room temperature, or cold. Refrigerate to store, covered with olive oil.
