  • 75g smoked mackerel, torn apart into pieces
  • Parmesan or mature cheddar cheese

  • Preheat the oven to 170ºC.
  • Cut capsicums in half and remove the seeds.  Place on an oven tray (I wrapped mine in foil).
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan then add crushed garlic, chopped tomatoes and the basil.
  • Cook for a few minutes, then add mushrooms and all of the seafood.
  • Cook for a further 10 minutes then spoon your mixture into the capsicum halves.
  • Top the capsicum halves with a small sprinkling of Parmesan or Cheddar.
  • Bake in the oven for up to 40-45 minutes or until the capsicums appear cooked.
