Pimientos de Padron

Absolutely one of my favourite tapas dishes, these delicious little Green capsicums are from the town of Padron in Galicia. I guess they may be quite difficult to buy outside of Spain so you may need to go to a specialist Spanish supplier.

They are deliciously sweet but one in a dozen or so is very hot, you really can't tell looking. They are simply cooked in a skillet with Olive Oil heated until it is nearly smoking hot then add the peppers, (wash and dry them first) for 4 or 5 minutes turning from time to time until slightly blistered and charred.

Drain the Peppers on some kitchen paper, and sprinkle generously with Sea Salt or salt Flakes. Irresistible with an ice cold glass of Manzanilla.
