    This is a classic Basque recipe of whole piquillo peppers filled with a delicious salt cod béchamel and served with a red pepper sauce. Piquillo peppers are often stuffed with meat, fish or seafood, and served as tapas. They are a variety of chilli with a sweet taste and no heat, traditionally grown in Northern Spain near the town of Lodosa in Navarra. Its name is derived from the Spanish for little beak. Typically, the peppers are handpicked between September and December. They are roasted over embers, which gives them a distinct sweet flavour. They are then peeled and de-seeded by hand, before being packed into jars or tins for sale.
