Pimientos de padron are small green Spanish peppers with an unusual trait: some are hot, some are not. Eating a plate of them is a bit of a gamble. They are grown in Australia but may be tricky to source. You can use bull's horn peppers, which are a similar shape but do not have the hot-or-not excitement. If you don't have a deep fryer, shallow fry in olive oil.

Ingredients

1kg green peppers

Sea salt

Vegetable oil

Method

Preheat oil to 180C. Deep fry peppers until they start to turn golden and blister.

Drain on a paper towel and season liberally with sea salt. Serve while still hot.
