Funky Padron Peppers
I found these funky looking Padron Peppers in my local supermarket. I've never seen or heard about them before, that's probably just me being ignorant as usual, so I had to grab a bag of them.
It says "1 in 30 has a kick!" on the packaging so I guess I'll have to verify that. I'll also verify if said kick is enough to warrant the image of a angry kicking bull on the front or if it should have been a slightly agitated wax worm instead.
The packaging says to fry them in olive oil for about 3 minutes or until the skin starts to blister, hopefully on the peppers. Once that's done, pop them into a bowl and sprinkle some salt over them.
I'll see if I can find any alternative ways of cooking them or if that is it. Once cooked and tried I'll post my findings up here.
In the meantime if anyone reading this knows anything about these little peppers, drop me a comment and let me know!
