Cut the onion across the grain into thin slices. Remove the tomato stem and cut into 16 equal wedges.
Bring the dashi to a gentle boil and add [A]. Add the onions and tomatoes and immediately turn off the heat. Stir in the lemon juice and empty into a tray. Set aside to cool.
Make an incision around the pepper stems and remove the stems and seeds. Use a grill or gridiron to cook until evenly browned.
