Padrón Peppers // Pimentos Padrón


Obviously inspired by one of my favourite starters at one of my favourite restaurants at the moment - Jácome, in Leça da Palmeira -, today I offer you these beautiful Padrón:

Ingredients:

Padrón peppers
sea salt
2 tablespoons of olive oil
a few drops of lemon juice


Heat the olive oil in a skillet
and place the padrón peppers. Cook them until they char. Then toss them and let them cook until they are tender.

Take them off the heat. Add the lemon juice and toss them again.

Place the padrón peppers in a serving bowl and sprinkle them with the salt.

Serve them with a chilled glass of white wine. This time I had Terras d'Alter 2012, which matches the taste of the charred peppers perfectly.

Enjoy!
Obviamente inspirada por uma das minhas entradas preferidas num dos meus restaurantes do momento - o Jácome, em Leça da Palmeira  -, hoje ofereço-vos estes belos Padrón:

Ingredientes:

pimentos Padrón
sal grosso
2 colheres de azeite de azeite
algumas gotas de sumo de limão


Aqueçam o azeite numa frigideira e coloquem os pimentos padrón. Cozinhem-nos até estarem chamuscados. Mexam-nos e deixem que cozinhem até estarem tenros.

Tirem-nos do lume. Espremam o sumo de limão e agitem-nos outra vez.

Coloquem os pimentos padrón numa taça e salpiquem-nos com o sal.

Sirvam-nos com um copo gelado de vinho branco. Desta vez provei Terras d'Alter 2012, que combina na perfeição com o sabor grelhado dos pimentos.

Bom apetite!

    1. Ando viciada - tanto fora, como em casa. Numa pizzaria onde costumo ir, até guardo alguns da entrada para espalhar pela pizza, tal é o meu vício. Beijinhos e boa semana!

    1. Thank you! I'm becoming so addicted to them - I've even gone to a few restaurants where they serve them as starters especially because of them. Oh well, I could do worse...

  4. Hi Alex, love this pepper, it look so appetizing. But only certain supermarket are selling this, so not often we get to buy this. I used to stuff with fish or chicken paste then cook with oyster sauce.

    Have a nice day, regards
    Amelia
