 To make the piquillo peppers:

  • Chop the remaining peppers and set aside.
  • Set aside the piquillo peppers.

To prepare the lamb legs:

  • Cook them in a stock with a Zalla onion, a peeled carrot and leeks.
  • Once cooked through, allow them to cool completely so that we can remove the bones.

To make the filling:

  • Sauté a Zalla onion (cut into brunoise) and add in the garlic (also cut into brunoise).
  • Add in the chopped peppers.
  • Mix the vegetables and the lamb meat. Use the stock in which we cooked the lamb to combine the filling.
  • Season and fill the piquillo peppers with the mixture. Fill them up to 2/3 of their capacity.
  • Coat the peppers with egg and flour. Making sure they are evenly coated.
  • Set aside.

For the sauce:

  • Place the peppers on a baking tray, cover them with tinfoil and heat them in the oven (dry heat) at 150 ºC.
  • Spoon some Biscayne sauce on to a plate and place the peppers on top.
  • Decorate with the fried leek.
