Padron Peppers

Padron Peppers are widely available at the markett

Padron peppers are the world’s fastest easiest and among the tastiest appetizers. Blister them in a pan of hot oil and then sprinkle with salt or step it up with a great blend of spices from ‪#‎BerkmansSpices‬.
Padrón peppers are small, with an elongated, conic shape. The taste is mild, but some can be quite hot, which property has given rise to the popular saying ” Os pementos de Padrón, uns pican e outros non” (Padrón peppers, some are hot, some are not)
Typically, there is no way of determining whether a given pepper will be hot or mild, short of actually eating it, though some maintain that smelling each cooked Padrón for spice prior to eating is a good indicator. But the easiest way to avoid the heat –stick with the small to tiny padrons, the bigger the hotter.
