Stuffed piquillo peppers

There are as many stuffed pepper recipes as there are chefs in the world. Hot, cold… With meat, fish… Yolanda has chosen the cold variety (perfect for the summer!) and as it could be no other way on Cooking with Serrats, with fish. What’s more, the vinaigrette gives it a tasty final touch. Take note of the recipe, try it and tell us about it…


  • Piquillo peppers – one tin
  • White Tuna in olive oil – one tin
  • Crab sticks – one pack
  • King prawns, large – 8
  • Green pepper – 1
  • Red pepper – 1
  • Onion – 1
