The quest for Padron Peppers..

Since a holiday in Palma in September last year I have been on the hunt for some padron peppers and have been harping on about them ever since. Last year I managed to order some from Waitrose but now it is says that they don’t stock them, I have seen them on the Sainsburys website but my local Sainsburys don’t sell them. I have even considered growing my own!!

I bought these little peppers from Aldi this week intending to put them in a salad but just had a thought that they look the same to a little green pepper so why not try and cook them in the same way and see if it works!!


I gently fried one in olive oil as a tester turning to make sure it was cooked evenly then sprinkled with sea salt.. It did not taste exactly the same as a padron peppers as the skin is quite a bit thicker and green peppers are more ” peppery” BUT it was really nice and definitely something I will be doing again!

You don’t get the 1 in 10 spicy pepper though which is a shame! I quite like playing pepper roulette.

Give it a go! a quick, easy and healthy snack!
