Kat's Seafood Stuffed Red Bell Peppers

Kathryn Mason Recipe

By Kathryn Mason Kathryn_Mason

I made this one up off the cuff. I generally take notes when I get inspired. If you want it to look impressive try to find bell peppers with four even lobes that can stand on their own, then cut off the top, otherwise any red bell can be used if cut as in the picture. Take it easy on the mayo. You just want it wet enough to not dry out while baking. This can be served as the main course or as a side to a light seafood main course like baked fish.
