Popping Piparra Peppers

Like padrón peppers, piparra chilli peppers are delicious fried in olive oil, then tossed with sea salt and munched on as a snack or as part of tapas meal. And just like padrón peppers, some of them are sweet and mild and some are hot and peppery – you won't know till you take a bite! Dare you play the pepper roulette?

1. Warm a large, deep frying pan for 1-2 mins. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan. Chuck in the peppers. Stir and fry for 3-5 mins till the peppers soften and are a little black and wrinkled in places.
2. Add a pinch of two of salt to the pan and toss a few times. Scoop the peppers out of the pan and pile onto a plate, board or in a bowl. Serve as a snack or starter, or as part of a tapas spread. You can eat the whole pepper (just discard the stem) but be warned – some of them are spicy!
