A couple of weeks ago in the guardian’s Saturday Magazine, Yotam Ottolenghi gave us a recipe using padrón peppers. I have eaten these in Tenerife but not cooked like this! Fast forward a week or so to when I was looking for inspiration in Waitrose’ vegetable aisle (as you do) and I spotted some padrón peppers! I’ve never seen them locally before so I immediately looked up the recipe and bought what I needed.
All you need to do is grill the peppers – washed, of course – then mix with the delicious dressing. Just remember – don’t not take your eyes off them when they’re under the grill or they will be burnt to a cinder! We had them alongside some roasted sea bass but as a nibble they would be just perfect.
Like all things Ottolenghi, these were amazing!
