  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200ºC. Place the combined capsicum in a roasting dish. Drizzle with 1 tbs oil and season with sea salt flakes and black pepper. Roast for 20-25 mins or until the skins have blistered and blackened slightly.
  2. Step 2

    Place the capsicums in a large sealable plastic bag. Set aside for 30 mins. Remove the seeds and membranes from the capsicums, then peel. Discard. Cut the capsicum into thin strips.
  3. Step 3

    Heat the remaining oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot or onion and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 3-5 mins or until the shallot is translucent but not coloured. Sprinkle with the sugar. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until sugar is light caramel in colour. Stir in the vinegar. Add the capsicum and cook for 3 mins. Add the sultanas and cook for a further 3 mins or until mixture thickens slightly. Carefully drain any excess liquid. Season. Cover to keep warm.
  4. Step 4

    Preheat grill on high. Drizzle the baguette slices with extra oil. Place on a baking tray. Cook under the grill until toasted.
  5. Step 5

    Arrange the baguette on a serving platter. Top with the capsicum mixture. Arrange the anchovies on top and sprinkle with the parsley.

    Drizzle with a little more olive oil and serve immediately.
