By the way - we finally discovered why people love Padron Pepper tapas. I picked a handful of smaller ones the other night - heated a bit of olive oil in a heavy pan, added the Padrons, and let them char on all sides - sprinkle with some sea salt, eat them whole.....so delicious - and the heat varied widely (the bigger ones got quite hot!). Positively addictive - we can't wait to do it again!
