Charred Padrón Peppers (Keto; Paleo)

Keto Padron Peppers
Keto Padron Peppers

The first time I had padrón peppers was in Barafina in Soho, London. Funnyman and I were drowning our sorrows, I cannot recall exactly but I suspect it was something financial. The irony was that we sat in this restaurant for about 4 hours and ordered three-quarters of the tapas menu items throughout the evening, washed down with plenty of wine (life before keto). Whatever was bothering us that night was soon forgotten (along with our financial common sense) – but the padrón peppers were memorable. Eaten whole, this is a risky little appetiser as some are hot and some are not. They are simply the perfect appetiser for someone who likes to live on the edge and I was delighted when I saw they are now readily available at the supermarket. I have made this several times and never encountered a spicy one, so perhaps not that risky after all..?

Instructions
  1. Heat a thin layer of olive oil (or melt a little lard) in a large, non-stick pan. When hot, add the padron peppers and cook until they blister and char on all sides. Give them a little squash with your spatula, then remove them and place them on a tray lined with kitchen paper.
  2. Sprinkle generously with Pink Himalayan Salt and a squeeze of lemon and serve immediately.
  3. The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down this page (keep scrolling), as well as the link to PIN THE RECIPE (for those on Pinterest). There is also a comment facility, so do let me know how you get on...
Recipe Notes

Since olive oil is somewhat unstable when heated, I do advise you select lard to fry food. It's inexpensive and can be found in the same aisle as butter.

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 0.7g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
