Leave a comment


  • 2 large red bell peppers
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ small onion, sliced
  • 6 ounces fresh chanterelles, cleaned and sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the peppers in a baking dish and put them in the oven. Roast them for 10 to 12 minutes. The skin will shrivel and begin to blacken in spots. Let the peppers cool in a paper bag. Remove the skin from them then slit the peppers open and remove the stems, seeds and veins.
  2. Put the peppers in a blender and add the lemon juice, sugar and salt. Blend to a smooth puree. Put the puree in a small saucepan and warm it slightly.
  3. Heat the oil in a saute pan and add the onion. Cook for one minute, then add the chanterelles, reduce the heat, cover and cook for 10 minutes, adding a little water if needed.
  4. Put some of the red pepper puree in the middle of each plate. Cover the puree with mushrooms
  5. Serve with salmon, halibut or mackerel on top.
