Tuna Red Pepper Roulade


3 large red bell peppers
1 8oz can of solid white tuna, drained
2 tbs lemon juice
3 tbs olive oil
3 green olives, pitted and chopped
3 black olives, pitted and chopped
2 tbs parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 celery stick, minced
kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper
butter lettuce leaves for garnish
  • Arrange the peppers on a baking sheet and place under a hot broiler. Cook turning them occasionally until all sides are charred and blistered. Alternatively you may roast them over a gas flame until the same result is achieved.
  • Remove from the heat and place the peppers in a zip lock plastic bag and close top so that the peppers can steam and the skin will loosen.
  • After about 5 minutes remove the peppers from the bag and remove the skin. Do not rinse.
  • Cut the peppers into quarters and remove the stems, seeds and membranes.
  • Meanwhile, flake the tuna and combine with the lemon juice and oil. Stir in the olives, parsley, garlic and celery.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Lay the pepper segments out flat, skinned side down.
  • Divide the tuna mixture equally among them. Spread it out, pressing it into an even layer.
  • Roll the peppers up and place the pepper rolls in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  • Just before serving, cut each roll in half with a sharp knife, then arrange of a lettuce covered serving platter.
