Maltese style tuna-stuffed peppers.

Serves 2
  • 4 peppers (any colour)
  • 1 can tuna
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 tbsp capers
  • 4 tbsp olives, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • parsley, chopped
  • 1 egg, hardboiled
  • Salt 
  • Pepper 
  • Paprika
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 packet crushed Gallett or water biscuits (optional)

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Boil egg and peel tomatoes. Dipping them in boiling water for a few seconds helps. In a large bowl mix all the ingredients except, of course, the peppers.

De-seed the peppers by removing a slice from the top. If they are too wobbly you can steady them by removing a small slice from the bottom as well. Set them in a baking dish and divide the mixture between the four peppers. Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, or until peppers are softened and filling is browned.

Serve with boiled potatoes and Maltese bread, if available.
