pintxo astearteak (tapa tuesdays)

pimientos de gernika.... EVERYWHERE.

Today's pintxo goes unattached to any certain bar. Why?  Because these local peppers, about 3 inches long, fat, and fried in olive oil until tender, are available almost everywhere. Order a ración, or a media if you're not sure you'll love them. But what's not to love?  Huge flakes of salt are the only garnish necessary to enjoy this seasonal treasure.
