Capsicum


This traditional Croatian recipe has been passed down generations. It’s a great combination of sweet and savoury; and you can choose which flavour to highlight by selecting which colour capsicums to use. It keeps well, so why not make it for two days. Serve capsicums with fresh crusty bread for dinner one day and meatballs with mash for dinner the next.

Tip: Add smoked ribs and/or speck for added flavour.
