Frieda's Specialty Produce - Padron Peppers

Overview

What are Padron Peppers?

  • Mild in flavor, padron peppers are small in size and are picked prematurely to keep them entirely edible. They have a peppery flavor and crisp texture. Their heat level is 2 out of 10 on the Scoville heat scale, but don’t be surprised if you find a fiery hot pepper in the mix.

How to Eat

  • Prepare padron peppers as finger food by pan frying them in olive oil until blistered, sprinkle with sea salt and lemon juice and serve. Chop and add to salsa, on top of pizza, soups and rice dishes. They can be preserved and pickled, and pair well with poultry, pork and seafood.

Health Benefits

  • High in vitamin C.

How to Choose

  • Choose bright, firm peppers with no bruises or blemishes.
