Red/Yellow Pepper Pairings

After spending hours scouring recipe books and conducting tasting experiments, I've found the following flavor pairings all go well with Red/Yellow Pepper. Click on any match to view its flavor matches.

  • Celery

    Why this pairing works:Celery and bell pepper share the same fruity, green notes along with a little spiciness and are often the backbone to soups and stews. So often are they and onion used in New Orleans cooking that New Orleanians have given them the name "The Holy Trinity". Dishes like gumbo and jambalaya all start from this base of ingredients.

  • Chicken

    E.g. Poulet Basquaise - Chicken and pepper stew.I can’t think of another recipe that better illustrates chicken and peppers than the French stew Poulet Basquaise. It is one of France's most famous stews and comes from the Basque region close to the Spanish border. This dish combines gently browned chicken thighs with a vibrant stew of tomatoes and red peppers. Bayonne ham is added to provide a little smoky depth and herbs like thyme and parsley act as an accent. Together they are slowly stewed in white wine and chicken stock before being served with rice pilaf.You can watch how to make it [here](YouTube

  • Cod

    E.g. Esqueixada de bacallà.Esqueixada de bacallà is a colorful summer salad from the Catalan region of Spain. Salty flaked cod is mixed with crunchy red peppers, sweet tomatoes, and briny black olives. Extra virgin oil is used to bind.

  • Walnut

    E.g. Muhammara - Roasted red pepper and walnut dip.Whilst many are familiar with hummus and baba ganoush, they may not know about the nutty and spicy Muhammara dip. Originating from Syria, red peppers, walnuts, pomegranate molasses, and spices are blended into a smooth consistency to create a vibrant red dip. The walnuts and red peppers are roasted beforehand to produce a deeply satisfying roasted flavor, and the pomegranates provide an interesting sweet but tangy counterpoint.
