- 200 g Padrón peppers
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- Half a lemon
- 8 slices of wholegrain toast
- 8 slices of Serrano ham
- 150 g CastelloÒ Aged Havarti
Rinse the Padrón peppers and let the dry off. Add the olive oil to a frying pan and make sure it is warm before adding the Padrón peppers. Fry for 3-4 minutes and stir the peppers occasionally to make sure they fry evenly. Season with salt, pepper and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Cut slices of CastelloÒ Aged Havarti and place on a slice of toast with Serrano ham and Padrón peppers. Finish with a few slices of Havarti and a slice of toast. Remove the crust and place the sandwiches in a toaster or panini grill for 3-5 minutes until the toast is golden. Cut the sandwiches diagonally and serve on a wooden board with fried Padrón peppers.
We suggest that you pair this tapas dish with a white wine. The salty and rich flavours and textures of this toasted sandwich would suggest a dry and crisp Riesling without too much sweetness or body.
