Piementos de Padrón at the Scoville scale

The Scoville scale is used to measure the amount of capsaicin to show the “hotness” of the pepper. Capsaicin is a substance which stimulates receptors on the tongue that are sensitive to heat and pain. This gives a burning sensation. To prevent overheated situations, it is recommended to check the hotness on the Scoville scale!

A little olive oil and salt on top and you have a delicious tapas snack. Please note that there could be hot peppers amongst it.
