Basque sweet red peppers

un pebrot del piquillo escalivat i en conserva

Also known as piments de piquillo, these are triangular dark red and not spicy, unlike those other famous Basque peppers, piments d’Espelette.

Grown in Navarra in Spain, piquillos, unlike other peppers, are sold already roasted in jars and ready to use. Pimientos de piquillo rellenos de guacamole y bonito

Often they are stuffed, with tuna or salt cod (piquillos au morue), or reheated with a bit of balsamic vinegar, or added to fish or meat dishes; they are an essential ingredient in poulet basquaise.
