Sweet and Sour Green Pepper
Shopping at farmers markets or super markets gives me inspiration of cooking. I usually decide what to have for dinner when I walk around markets. Chili and pepper aren’t very popular in Hong Kong so there aren’t many choices in the market. But I like them so much! This evening, I found some cute and fresh green peppers and thought I could make something delicious with them.
I googled and judging from the size and shape, I guessed they might be Pimiento de Patron or Guernica. I wasn’t sure if they were spicy or not. According to the information I read, if they were Pimiento de Patron, there might be chance some of them were spicy, but if they were Guernica, then the spiciness was very mild. I wasn’t sure so they’d better be seeded and it should be lovely to make them sweet and sour. This would help to reduce the spiciness.
250g Green peppers
Two or three garlic gloves, finely chopped
Seasoning ingredients –
2 tbsp of aged sorghum vinegar, 1 tbsp of sugar, 1 tbsp of light soysauce, 1/2 tbsp of starch powder, 2 tbsp of water
How to do –
1. Carefully seed the peppers and shake off the seeds;
2. Oil in hot pan, put a little bit more oil, about four tablespoon, oil and pepper are good partners. Fry the peppers in medium high heat till the skin turn a little golden brown;
3. Add in the chopped garlic and fry with the pepper;

Two among all the peppers were hot, so I thought these were Pimiento de Patron.
