Stuffed piquillo peppers

I have seen this recipe on tv when i was in my first year of chef  school , it was  14 years ago .The dish looked so yummy but i didn’t try it at the time , then totally forgot about it until i recently followed on Facebook the tv chef that presented this dish and got hit with a recipe flashback . The hardest part about the recipe is to find the piquillo peppers in oil and not in vinegar as it will give a unpleasant acid taste to the dish. The dish can be vegetarian friendly if you remove the fish and replace it with cheese.
