First Padron crop of the year
Harvested the first fruits off the Padron chillie plants last night, not many but if they grow anything like last year there will be plenty more to come over the following months :)
The method for cooking these is really easy. Cover the base of your frying pan with olive oil and heat on high untill it starts to smoke, then put the padrons into the pan and fry them until the skins turn white and blister (a couple of mins), remove peppers onto some kitchen roll to soak up any exess oil, sprinkle with course sea salt, enjoy as a snack/tapas with a cold beer.
