Pimientos de Padrón

  • On a nonstick pan, heat the olive oil at high heat until it is hot, but not smoking.
  • Add the peppers and toss occasionally. Cook further until the skin of the peppers starts to blister and is tender. Give it a good brown, but do not burn them.
  • Transfer the cooked Padrón peppers to a serving plate.
  • Finish off generously with some Mediterranean Sea salt, serve and enjoy!
COOKING TIPS:

Cook in high heat but toss occasionally to avoid burning and overcooking the Padrón peppers. Avoid overcrowding the pan because it might be difficult to toss, and you might end up with a result you are not expecting. You may do this in batches.

SERVE WITH:

This tapa goes so well with a beer and this one is a great side dish to your “Chuletón” (Txuleton) steak (Ribeye of a Cattle).
