Product Description

Piquillo peppers are one of the foundation vegetables of Spanish cuisine being introduced to Spain from South America in the 1500s. Both green and red peppers made their way into rice dishes such as paella, as well as salads and stews. The Spaniards soon found ways of preserving them.

These piquillo peppers are grown and prepared in Peru for Carretilla – a respected Spanish producer. Ripe peppers are handpicked, cleaned and roasted to separate the skin from the flesh. The skin is removed, the tops cut off, the insides de-seeded and the peppers hand packed into tins.

Stuff these peppers with tuna, egg and mayo for a southern Spanish style snack or cut into strips and lay across a Russian salad. We always use piquillo pepper strips in our paella, and they’re fantastic on a home-made pizza. They also go brilliantly with roast lamb and grilled fish.

Drained weight 360g.

Piquillo peppers (85%), salt, sugar, acidulant, (citric acid), and firming agent (calcium chloride).

    Oh ever since I found out about these Piquillo peppers I have always made Paella with them and shared with all, they are a great addition and no Paella should be made without them
