A combination of bell peppers, tomatoes, onions and garlic cooked in olive oil, peperonata is a popular dish on the island of Sicily, in southern Italy. Peperonata is often served as an accompaniment to meats or fish.

- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 red onions, thinly sliced
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 8 bell peppers (any combination of yellow, orange and red), seeded and
cut into thin strips
- 6 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
- 1/4 cup capers, rinsed
- 4 tsp. red wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
- 4 bread-crusted fish fillets for serving
- Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley for garnish
Wine PairingThis pairs well with crisp, medium-bodied white wines like the Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Napa County/Sonoma County from our Wine Club.
Directions:In the stovetop-safe insert of a slow cooker, or in a sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft but not browned, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add the bell peppers, tomatoes, capers and vinegar and stir to combine.
Transfer the insert to the slow-cooker base; if you used a sauté pan, transfer the bell pepper mixture to a slow cooker. Cover and cook on high according to the manufacturer's instructions until the peppers are soft, about 1 hour. Stir in the basil.
Divide the peperonata among 4 individual bowls and top each with 1 fish fillet, breaded side up. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately. Serves 4.
