Italian fried peppers (friggitelli), tasty side dish | Ingredients: little green peppers, cherry tomatoes, garlic, olive oil | Simple ingredients for this traditional side dish from Naples! Easy recipe and a delicious side dish!

In Naples and around Naples these little, fried peppers are called, friggitelli or in Neapolitan hot: friariell ‘! The origin of the name comes from the Italian word for fry = friggere. So it is obvious, that these little green mild peppers are fried in a skillet!

Traditionally, these little mild green peppers are fried without removing the seed. But if you don’t like the that, then remove the seed and cut them into pieces before frying.

Making them the last time here in Germany I’ve left the seeds. But I have to say, that I’ve eaten these friggitelli at my parents’ house in Italy during my summer vacation! Fresh friggitelli from my parents garden, so heavenly!! And my mum removed the seeds and of course it was much more pleasant to eat! So the next friggitelli that I make are seedless!! 😉

Now, don’t panic, if you don’t have these friggitelli at your grocery store or you don’t find them at the market place! This recipe also works great with “normal” bell peppers that we get everywhere! 😉 Just try!

This fried mild peppers are very suitable as an accompaniment to various dishes, or served cold as a tasty appetiser, or use them to spice up sandwiches, or grab them on a burger, or serve with delicious pasta……. fantastic!! 😉

And here is the recipe!

  1. Emmi, these peppers looks delish. I love having simple recipes for the fresh veggies that we pick out of the garden. The simpler the preparation the fresher the produce tastes. I’m going to look for this type of pepper, we grow bell peppers and cubanelle peppers, but these look like they would be a great addition to our garden. Pinning to save, can’t wait to try your recipe.
