PIQUILLO DE LODOSA

Species: Annuum | Origin: Spain | Heat: Mild
Add to my growing list

Pimientos del piquillo come from Navarra in Spain, and have their own "Denominación de Origen" (D.O. Pimientos del Piquillo de Lodosa). These small red peppers are charred over wood charcoal / old vines, then peeled by hand, marinated in olive oil with herbs, and eventually eaten either alone or in a salad or stuffed.
