Pimientos de padron are a little green pepper indigenous to Spain. They’re considered the ‘russian roulette’ of veggies as about one in ten (or some say one in thirty) are spicy, but the others are mild. As the saying goes ‘Os pementos de Padrón, uns pican e outros non.’ This means ‘some are spicy and some are not.’ I really craved them and tried to find them everywhere. Eventually I bought them online from the Spanish Tapas Company, which delivered two 500g bags priced at £5.00 each. A little pricy but totally worth it in my opinion. They are so easy to cook. Just wash and dry, then pop into frying pan of olive oil for three minutes or until browned. Sprinkle with salt and eat. My mother also made some delicious potato wedges with dried oregano and sweet potato wedges with paprika. I made a simple sauce with ketchup, tobacco, Worcestershire sauce, squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of brown sugar.
