Salmon Stuffed Peppers

This is a great lunch or snack recipe I make often. It is quick and easy to put together and tastes great! I sometimes cook the bell peppers beforehand to soften them up a bit but both raw or cooked peppers work well for this recipe. I use Hellman's mayonnaise which is the Canadian version of Best Foods mayonnaise for my American friends.

1 bell pepper
1 (213 grams) can salmon
2 to 3 tablespoons reduced fat Hellman’s mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh minced onion
1 tablespoon chopped hot pickled peppers
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
1/4 teaspoon chopped thyme
Few drops Tabasco sauce
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Slice the pepper in half and remove the stem, ribs and seeds; set aside
Remove and discard the skin and bones from the canned salmon.
Place the salmon in a mixing bowl along with the mayonnaise, minced onion, hot pickled peppers, lemon juice, ground chipotle pepper, thyme, Tabasco sauce, salt and pepper and mix together well.
Stuff the hollowed pepper halves and cut into wedges.
