Description

 

These whole roasted piquillo peppers are delicious! They are naturally sweet and bright red in colour, but the skins are a bit bitter. So they are first roasted over wood fires to help the skins peel off easily. This also enhances their naturally sweet flavour. They are then packed in the container in their own juices, which are also flavoured and can be added to the dish.

The classic Spanish dish using these types of peppers is to stuff them with a bechamel sauce. This can be flavoured with seafood, vegetables or meats. But they are also delicious sliced, in a salad with tuna and some finely sliced mild Spanish onions. Or try them in casseroles and rice dishes. One of our favourites is with onions, chicken pieces and rice!

This comes in a large 3kg tin, drained weight of peppers 1.9kg, for catering
