Piquillo Peppers, Whole Roasted
Piquillos are a unique little pepper that's typically found in Northern Spain, where it's popular in the cuisine of the region. The peppers are roasted slowly over embers (as opposed to a flame fire) and they develop a delicate and sweet smoky flavour, with a mild spiciness. Hand peeled, their seeds removed, you'll find piquillo peppers often stuffed with delicious mixtures and served as "tapas" or appetizers. A common recipe is stuffed piquillo peppers with soft goat cheese, Chop them up and incorporate them into salads and soups for a sweet and smoky twist.
