Peeling Peppers, Step by Step Culinary School with Picture, the Instructions from the Professional
from Thomas Sixt
Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!
1. Peel Peppers yes or noPeeling peppers or not, that is a question of philosophy. If you can spend enough time cooking and want to offer your guests or family the best possible pepper preparation, then peel the peppers before preparation. The skin of the pepper is indigestible, so peeled peppers are definitely more digestible.
The skin of the pepper is indigestible, please peel it!
2. Prepare Paprika for PeelingFor all three varieties, peel the peppers, first wash them, then cut them in half, remove the core, then skilfully cut them into quarters or sometimes eighths. Always try to cut exactly at the end of the bend, so you get the best pieces of pepper to peel.
3. Peel Peppers Like the ProfessionalsThis is how the chefs and star chefs do it: The pepper is prepared as described above and the pieces of pepper are placed on a baking tray with the skin facing up and then placed under the preheated grill.
Grill the peppers, then peel them, so I prepared the peppers for ratatouille at the star chef!
