Roasted Sea Salt and Pepper Padron Peppers

Roasted Sea Salt and Pepper Padron Peppers

This past weekend at the farmer’s market I found some delicious padron peppers. Padron peppers are originally from Spain and typically eaten as tapas. Eating padron peppers can be a little like roulette since they range in spiciness from mild like a bell pepper to a tad less spicy than a jalapeno. My favorite way to eat them is simply pan roasted and tossed with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper.

Roasted Padron Peppers


  • 1 lb. padron peppers
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Generous amount of sea salt and black pepper
  • Optional: Juice of 1 lemon

Cooking Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy duty skillet. Once hot add the peppers.
  2. Cook the peppers until browned and blistered on all sides. It will likely take around 8 minutes total.
  3. Toss with sea salt and pepper.
