you’re a spicy little guy….

27 Aug

A special little pepper in Spain, the padron pepper is packed full of flavour and are mostly sweet and mild but 1 out of 10 is ultra spicy!  The traditional way to serve these guys in Spain is to fry them with a little olive oil and add sea salt.  Eat ’em whole and be ultra surpised should you bite into a spicy one!

The spicy ones seem a little hot at first but slowly builds until it’s ultra spicy in your mouth.  Delicious but potentially deadly.  Our batch turned up A LOT of spicy ones so I think they’re destined to turn into a hot sauce instead of a snack.

Try it yourself…add a little bit of olive oil to a hot pan and fry them until the skin starts to blister and turn brown/black.  Add a little salt and enjoy!
