 4 skinless red snapper fillets, each about 180g and 25mm thick
 Extra-virgin olive oil
 Freshly ground black pepper
 Salt
VINAIGRETTE
 3 capsicums, preferably red, yellow and orange
 3 tbsp tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
 2 tbsp tablespoons fresh orange juice
 2 tbsp tablespoons finely chopped Italian parsley
 1 tbsp tablespoon fresh lemon juice
 ½ tsp teaspoon minced garlic
 ½ tsp teaspoon ground cumin
 ¼ tsp teaspoon salt
 ¼ tsp teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
 ¼ tsp teaspoon tabasco sauce
1

Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat.

2

Cook the capsicums over direct high heat until the skins are evenly charred on all sides, 10 to 12 minutes, turning every 3 to 4 minutes.

3

Remove them from the barbecue and place in a paper bag; close tightly. Let them stand for 10 to 15 minutes to steam off the skins. Remove the capsicums from the bag and peel away the charred skins. Cut off the tops and remove the seeds. Cut the capsicums into 5mm strips and set aside. In a medium bowl whisk together the remaining vinaigrette ingredients. Add the capsicum and set aside for up to 24 hours.

4

Lightly brush or spray the snapper fillets with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper. Cook the fillets over direct high heat until the flesh is opaque in the centre, 2½ to 3½ minutes each side.

5

Serve the snapper fillets with the roasted pepper vinaigrette spooned over the top.
