Appetizers

Padron Peppers

These peppers are best enjoyed as an appetizer prepared in the simplest way by cooking in a hot olive oil coated frying pan and sprinkled with sea salt before serving. They are generally a mild pepper but every once in awhile, a spicy one will pop up!

Ingredients

  • Padron peppers
  • 1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt

Directions

  • Add olive oil to a hot frying pan, when the oil is hot and shimmering add the peppers. Cook and stir the peppers until the skin is brown and blistered. Remove the peppers from the pan, place on the plate and sprinkle with sea salt to taste. Enjoy!

    Wine Pairing: The slightly spicy peppery character of these peppers make a great match with the subtle peppery flavors of sauvignon blanc.
