Padrón Peppers

Posted on 27th October 2015 by serranomanchegoadmin

Padrón Peppers are traditionally grown outdoors in La Coruña, North-West Spain, and are in season from July to October, although the proliferation of of greenhouse production means you can now get them year-round. Picked when small, around 5cm long, they are generally mild, except for the odd one that is smokin’ hot. Miguel You can serve them on their own, as a garnish or even stuffed, but we prefer to serve them to fry them in a shallow pan with olive oil for about 30 seconds until tender, then sprinkle with sea alt and serve to eat while hot.

We suggest you share them with friends a cold beer, a sherry or a chilled white wine like albariño🙂
