A simple but must-have starter straight from a tapas bistro in sunny Spain.
Pimientos are small green pods with variable spiciness.
Their name originates from the city of Pimiento, which is located in the northwestern part of Spain, in the region of Galicia.
In Bulgaria, pimientos can easily be replaced by our medium hot rosehips. The inconstancy of the hotness of the rosehips is the same as that of the Spanish peppers and fully corresponds to the image of the dish – Russian roulette.
They say that for every fifth pepper, one is hot
Here is the recipe:
20 – 30 rosehips are fried under a lid in preheated, quality extra virgin olive oil.
When they are almost golden, add coarsely chopped garlic (maybe crushed cloves with the scales)
After two to three minutes, they are removed from the fire.
Sprinkle generously with coarsely crushed sea salt and serve with good bread.
