Delicious Padron peppers recipe that is easy and incredibly tasty and healthy.

The first time we tried these amazing green gems, called padron peppers, was in Madrid a few years ago. Almost every tapas bar had them as a sharing platter (tapas) or a snack. At first we were confused – what’s the fascination with a plate of peppers? We were intrigued so we went ahead and ordered these pimientos de Padrón (Padron peppers in Spanish). It all fell into place, so simple yet so delicious especially with a lot of sea salt. Some are spicy, some are not, but that’s the best part of this dish. It’s like Russian roulette. Personally I like them less spicy but Matt was sold on the ridiculously hot ones. It became a game, who gets what as it was impossible to tell them apart.

Now every time we see them in the supermarket, we have to get them. Padron peppers are a perfect source of your five-a-day and so quick and easy to prepare – like ridiculously easy. Just fry the peppers by flipping and turning them for a few minutes or until well blistered all over and season with sea salt. That’s it. The best thing about Padron peppers is that they are packed with vitamins A, B1, B2, C and P, proteins, calcium and iron, and are great cancer-fighters. This dish is perfect as a little starter or a snack. We are addicted.
