1 Preheat barbecue grill to a medium heat. Arrange capsicum halves on grill. Close hood and cook on a low heat for about 10 minutes until capsicums soften and collapse. (If you don’t have a hooded barbecue, simply cook them on the grill until they soften and collapse.)
2 Place a tomato half and bocconcini slice inside each capsicum half and top with an anchovy (if using). Cover with barbecue hood and cook for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted. Season to taste and garnish with basil.
You can also cook these capsicums in a 200ºC oven.
