Preparation Instructions:

1. If using your oven broiler, move your oven rack to it’s topmost position and preheat the broiler on high. If searing on the stovetop, preheat a pan on high heat.

2. Remove stem and seeds from the bell pepper and cut into quarters. 

3. Lightly crush garlic cloves and remove skins.

4. If using a broiler, place bell pepper pieces and garlic cloves in an ovenproof dish, skin side up and toss with a light drizzle of olive oil. If using the stovetop, place bell pepper and garlic skin side down in the hot pan. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the peppers and garlic start to blister and char.

6. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

7. Add blistered peppers, garlic, olive oil and Merguez seasoning to a food processor or blender and blitz to desired consistency.

8. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
