The Basics: Yellow Bell Peppers


Cooking Essentials

The Technique

Yellow Bell Peppers 

Bell peppers, often times referred to as sweet peppers, are a large mild chili originally grown in Mexico, Central America & South America. They register on the Scoville Scale, a chart specifically designed to gauge the heat level of peppers, at the bottom with a rating of zero. Bell peppers may be used in all sorts of wonderful recipe applications providing lovely texture, flavor, nutritional value & color. They may be found in green, with subtle bitter undertones, yellow, orange & red which are sweeter in flavor. The hue changes as the fruit ripens or ages on the plant. Yellow bell peppers generally fall in the middle of that process although there are some varieties that do remain the same color throughout it. In general, they offer good taste in classic recipes such as Chicken & Sausage Gumbo & Grilled Steak Fajitas but they also provide a striking look to many outdoor grilling specialties including Rosemary-Citrus Turkey Kabobs & Rosemary-Garlic Tri-Tip Steak Kabobs.

How To Prepare Bell Peppers For Kabobs

Properly preparing yellow bell peppers for kabobs will result in a beautiful presentation. Complete this procedure with all of the peppers before the treading step begins as it will be more efficient. The top & bottom curved portion will be sliced away & not used for the kabobs, however do indeed save them for salads or add them to a sautéed or roasted vegetable mix that includes onions & carrots.

Using a chef knife, slice the ends away from the pepper, then place it on one of the flat ends over the cutting board. Slice the pepper down the center. Place one half interior side up. Using a paring knife, trim away the membrane & remove the seed filled core. Discard. Press the pepper flat, then slice crosswise into pieces. Thread the bell pepper pieces as directed onto wooden skewers according to specific recipe instruction. Look to Cooking Classics: Tri-Tip Steak Kabobs that illustrates this application beautifully.
