I bought some Padron Peppers at the Veg Out Farmers market last weekend. I first tried them at Cutler and Co, blistered to perfection in a hot pan with olive oil and sprinkled liberally with sea salt.

They make great dinner party theatre as most of the chillies are sweet and mild but roughly 1 in 10 are hot, hot, hot. I love a little bit of culinary russian roulette! There was only 1 hottie in this batch though.

You'll Need

  • Padron Peppers
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Sea salt


Add a tablespoon or so of olive oil to a searing hot non stick fry pan and blister the peppers on each side. They will only take a minute so keep an eye on them.

Sprinkle with sea salt and serve.
