How to use
In the restaurants MoVida uses Piquillo's in a many of different ways. Their natural sweetness pairs beautifully with seafood; in Spain this normally means salt cod which is either battered and fried in chunks before being stuffed into the whole piquillos or roasted then laid across a bed of diced peppers. Our favourite updates along this theme have been to stuff them with crab meat or pair them with fresh sea urchin on a piece of crusty charred sourdough. Their smokey flavour also makes them a natural companion to chargrilled meat; they make a fantastic garnish for dry aged steak where the sweetness plays against the funk of seriously old beef. One of our favourite restaurants in Rioja, Tondeluna in Logrono used to make a tartare with them, diced and mixed with egg yolk, raw beef, capers, shallot and fried artichoke crisps... it still ranks as one of our favourite tartares.
