These easy Griddled Bell Peppers are simple to make but pack a big punch flavour wise. You can make them indoors or outside on a bbq or grill. They only take 15 minutes and are a brilliant side dish or ingredient. And they’re ideal for meal prep too!

The beauty of this recipe is that it is barely a recipe. In fact the measurements given in the recipe below are purely there to give you a small idea of the sort of quantities I use. There is absolutely no need to measure anything.
The other bonus to this recipe is that you do not need to wait for great weather and a charcoal barbecue to get beautifully charred peppers. 99% of the time I make these indoors using my cast iron grill.
The trick like with most cast iron cooking can be summed up as follows. 1) Make sure the pan is on the highest heat and is steaming hot. 2) Oil the food not the pan. Otherwise you won’t be able to see the food for the smoke. And that’s pretty much it.
I’ve used olive oil and garlic salt to add extra flavour to the peppers. Use another oil if you wish, add other spices or just use plain salt. There are huge amounts of flexibility in this “recipe” for griddled peppers.
A good pair of silicone tongs won’t object to the heat of the griddle and will make turning the peppers a doddle. So I highly recommend picking up a pair.

Griddled Bell Peppers
- 2 Bell Peppers - any colour but not green
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- ¼ tsp Garlic Salt
- Place a griddle pan or frying pan onto a high heat.
- Hold 2 Bell Peppers upright by their stalks one at a time. Use a sharp knife to slice off the 4 sides (maybe more sides if they are a strange shape). Try to keep the slices as big as possible. Slice the bottom off the pepper and discard the stalk and innards.
- Lay the slices on a board and brush roughly 1 tbsp Olive Oil over both sides.
- Sprinkle ¼ tsp Garlic Salt over the oil, just on the inner side of the slices.
- Lay the slices onto the hot griddle or pan.
- Cook for roughly 10 minutes using tongs to turn them over regularly.
- Serve when they’re soft and charred.
This is my favourite way to serve peppers. I love the flavour peppers get from being grilled and they are such a good addition to so many meals.

YES please to these Cloe 🙂 I LOVE peppers and especially when they are griddled. I bet these would be great in cheesy quesadillas, Karen
I love peppers and use them in a lot of my cooking, however grilled like this they take on such a lovely smokiness. Great recipe.
