Fried Peppers

A friend came by today and brought red,green,yellow and orange bell peppers...MY first thought was good lord what to do with all these...
I then remembered my grandma's neighbor frying peppers when I was a teen,
So we fired up the stove and sliced the peppers in strips, discarded the core and seeds and then dusted the peppers with flour, put them into hot oil and when golden and tender out they came to a tray lined with paper towels and we then sprinkled them with salt...Of course we couldn't let them cool of as that would have ruined them...Ahhh, they were so good....I hope you'll give this a try, the taste is great...

There is also an Italian dish called pepperonata which you might be interested in if your friend comes calling with full arms again. I have included a link for you.

I never thought of sprinkling them with flour before frying.
I will certainly give that one a try. It sounds delicious.

Mel,
I didn't remember the flour at first,but after frying a batch and they didn't look the same we decided to try the flour like we do when frying eggplant..This gave us what we wanted and remembered. And, yes they were so good..Wish I could do some more this morning

will the peppers hold the flour or do you have to dip in something first to moisten? Sounds different. Thanks. You really have some good friends.

The peppers were damp on the inside and a little on the outside from being washed...But, you just want a light dusting on them nothing heavy...

Throw some onions & sausage in there, serve on crusty bread & sign me up.

Curious about the flour. Do the peppers turn out pasty at all? TIA.

Had an idea for roasting peppers, cutting in half (or large chunks) & spreading mascarpone on em - or ricotta cheese & mushrooms. Frying them might be another way for me to go. Thanks for the idea.
