1 Quarter bell peppers lengthwise, remove the seeds, rinse and dry. Place skin sides up on a baking sheet.
2 Roast peppers under preheated broiler until blackened and blistered, watching carefully. Place in a bowl, cover with a plate and let stand 10 minutes.

5 Rinse lemon with hot water and wipe dry. Finely grate zest and squeeze juice.
6 Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté shallots until translucent, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes.
7 Add bell peppers and corn and cook over low heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
8 Meanwhile, peel the garlic and finely chop. 
9 Mix garlic in a small bowl with paprika, oregano, cumin, red-pepper flakes and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
