Who doesn’t like roasted peppers? I for one love them! I like to bake them on the grill, but I can just as easily bake them on the stove, in a skillet or a grill pan. But peeling them is another story for most people. And it should not be like that because peeling baked peppers is actually very easy.

Roasting the peppers not only makes them easy to peel, it makes them incredibly sweet and flavorful. It’s time to learn how to easily peel baked peppers with two easy and pretty similar methods. Choose whichever is more convenient to you. I prefer method #1.
- One of the secrets to easily peel them is to not burn the peppers. For this, avoid placing the peppers directly over a flame and constantly keep an eye on them, switching them from one side to another from time to time.
- After roasting the peppers on all sides, place them in a bowl and sprinkle some coarse salt. Cover with a lid for about 15-20 minutes. If you want to, you can let them cool completely, there is absolutely no problem! It will definitely be harder to peel them if you burn your hands!
- Now the skin will come off easily and you’ll be able to remove it almost in one motion.
- Transfer the roasted peppers to a plastic bag and tie it loosely. Leave to cool. While they cool they mist up, making peeling easier.
- After about 10 minutes, the peppers are cold. Remove them one by one and peel.
