Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
  • 24 medium jalapeño peppers
  • 8oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup smoked salmon, finely chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely minced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dill, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil

Preheat oven to 350*F or barbecue to medium.

Cut tops off of washed jalapeños. Using a fine knife or apple corer, remove the seeds and membranes from the inside of the pepper, and rinse them out. If you aren’t patient enough to do it this way, you can also cut the peppers in half lengthwise and scrape the membranes out. Toss jalapeños lightly in a little olive oil.

If baking in an oven, spread jalapeños on a baking sheet, and bake for 15-20 minutes, until they are slightly softened. If cooking on the barbecue, make a packet from aluminum foil, and cook for about 20 minutes, until slightly softened. Remove, and cool.

In a medium bowl combine cheese, salmon, onion, garlic, dill, salt, and pepper. Stir well. Refrigerate until peppers are ready.

Fill a pastry bag with cheese mixture. Fill peppers. Chill until ready to serve.

Substitutes:

  • Crab or shrimp meat
  • Italian Sausage and red bell pepper
  • Spinach and cheese
  • Prepared peppers can be wrapped in half slices of bacon and pan fried or barbecued until crisp
