SLICE THE PEPPER INTO STRIPS 2- to 3-inches long and about 1/4-inch

add the peppers, sprinkled with salt, and stir so that all are coated with
the oil. Cook over a brisk heat, shaking the pan occasionally until the
peppers are hot and beginning to cook, about 5 minutes, then stir in the
tomato paste. When it is well incorporated, add the vinegar and stir.

season with pepper, and heap onto a serving plate.
