• 1 Romano red pepper

• 40g halloumi
• 2 teaspoons olive oil
• 30g Rocket leaves(It’s 300 cals 9.3g carbs, 21.8g fat, 14.4g protein) You can serve half this recipe with grilled fish or a grilled chicken breast or steak.)


Cut pepper along its length and deseed. Place peppers on a baking tray. Cut tomatoes into halves and divide among the half peppers. Add capers and crushed garlic to pepper halves. Top off with anchovies. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Roast in the oven at around 200 degrees for 15 - 20 mins until peppers are soft and the edges are starting to char. While the peppers are roasting, place the rocket on a plate. Slice the 40g of haloumi reasonably finely and fry in the remaining 1 tsp olive oil. Place the pepper halves on top of the rocket and top off with the haloumi. The salad doesn’t need dressing as the peppers are juicy and delicious.

If you want fewer calories and lower fat skip the halloumi. If you want vegetarian skip the anchovies. If you wan vegan skip he anchovies and the halloumi.

    Wow wow wow! Just made this for the first time and it was honestly one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. I’m a vegetarian and don’t eat fish so I didn’t put anchovies on. So quick and easy but looks impressive. The flavours compliment each other perfectly. I added an extra clove of garlic as I love it. Will definitely be a firm favourite from now on.

    Really easy to cook, and very much enjoyed. I added a few chilli flakes and more garlic.

    Wonderful! I left out the anchovies. When meals are so important, they need to look and taste good, and this does,
