Padron is a small area of Spain situated very close to the Northern border with Portugal, on the Atlantic coast side and it’s just a short distance south of the famed Santiago de Compostela.So these are a sweet pepper (pimientos de Padrón in Spanish) that originated from South America that you lightly fry and then eat… Then what’s the twist?Well the twist is that for some unknown reason roughly one pepper in 20 or 30 will have a slight kick to it, not a whopping belt of a kick like a Jalapeño or Habanero pepper, but just a pleasant surprise to tickle your taste buds. No, they don’t throw one of a different variety of pepper into the bag as a joke, apparently the “ odd one with a kick” is a natural quirk of this pepper variety. Warning, these are addictive! .. and a brilliant tapas recipe!There is one other similar recipe here, but it uses garlic and balsamic vinegar and a LOT more olive oil, this is the original Spanish recipe from the family that farm Padron Peppers in Herbon – Padron, Spain.
